City of Houston to Host First Military Veterans Career Fair

October 21, 2015 -- In an effort to help veterans find lasting jobs, the City of Houston Office of Veterans Affairs will host its inaugural Military Veterans Career Fair on November 6, 2015. This event will take place from 9:00 am to 2:00 pm at the Moody Park Community Center located at 3725 Fulton St. Houston, Texas, 77090.

This first Military Veterans Career Fair will feature jobs currently available within various City of Houston departments.  There are openings for 911/311 call takers, administrative workers, equipment operators, financial analysts, engineers, mechanics, nurses, project managers, project technicians and safety supervisors.

“Our military service men and women have given a great deal to our country,” said Mayor Parker.  “Unfortunately, when they return home, they often have a difficult time finding the gainful employment they need to support their families.  The City has many jobs that are a perfect fit for the experience and skills gained in the military.  We hope this event results in some mutually beneficial partnerships.”

Job candidates are encouraged to create an online career profile and apply to available positions at www.houstontx.gov/jobs/ prior to attending the Career Fair. Candidates must also pre-register for this event at http://www.houstontx.gov/vetaffairs/. More information on the City of Houston Office of Veterans Affairs and the Military Veterans Career Fair is available at http://www.houstontx.gov/vetaffairs/.

The Military Veterans Career Fair kicks off the City’s Veterans Day observance. Then on November 11, 2015 there will be a Career, Resource, and Health Fair at City Hall at 9 a.m., followed by the annual ceremony at 10 a.m. and the Veterans Day parade through downtown at 11:30 a.m.
