(Deptford, NJ) – The first Veterans Job Fair and Resource Event will take place on Thursday, June 26 from 9 am to 1 pm in the gymnasium of Rowan College at Gloucester County, 1400 Tanyard Road, Sewell. 

Freeholder Director Robert Damminger said, "A diverse group of employers will be in attendance, all who have indicated they are interested in hiring our local veterans.   It is our hope that this event will engender ongoing interest from the local businesses and that this event will be the first of many more to follow." 

“The County Economic Development Team was approached by the American Legion to join forces to help get our veterans and their family members back to work,” said Freeholder Heather Simmons.  “The county holds job fairs throughout the year, but this is our first geared at our local heroes and we are thrilled to have over 50 employers who will be participating.”  Simmons is the liaison to the Department of Economic Development.  

Freeholder Deputy Director Giuseppe 'Joe' Chila, liaison to Veterans Affairs said that in addition to the employers who will be on site, there will be resources and information from veterans’ agencies and organizations.   

Chila said, “This is an event for all veterans and their family members who are looking for a job.  Attendees should dress for success and be prepared to interview onsite.  We are looking to get a lot of our vets back to work and we are grateful so many of our local employers are coming out to support them and hopefully hire them.”
