WASHINGTON. D.C. – Congressman Frank Guinta today announced the first Job Fair for Granite State veterans and service members looking for employment. Attendees will have the opportunity to attend workshops on resume writing and interviewing techniques, speak with representatives from various companies, apply for new positions and discuss concerns with Congressman Guinta and staff.
“In New Hampshire, we have one of the highest veterans’ populations in the nation. We know all too well the challenges our servicemen and women face during their transition into civilian life. Unfortunately, one of the hardest challenges remains finding a good-paying job upon returning home. Our veterans are some of the brightest and most dedicated employees out there; and, we owe it to them to help smooth their transition, which is why I’m hosting this Job Fair for our veterans and military service members to attend.”
Over 20 local businesses will be participating in the Job Fair, including Service Credit Union, UPS, Walmart, Portsmouth Naval Shipyard, UN Police Department, Kelly Services, Great Bay Community College, Foss Manufacturing Company, Sig Sauer, Adecco and more.
The Veterans Job Fair is open to all New Hampshire active military, National Guard, Reserve, Veterans and their families. There is no cost to participate in the fair and parking is free.
Constituents or employers wishing to participate are encouraged to call the Manchester office at (603) 641-9536 with further questions.
