Maine’s annual Hire-A-Vet Campaign, a statewide effort with the goal of at least 100 employers hiring at least 100 veterans and military family members during a 100-day period, is back. The campaign is kicking off with an in-person hiring fair from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on August 17 at the Augusta Civic Center. It will be followed by monthly in-person hiring events throughout the campaign.
The campaign is expecting to feature over 100 hiring employers and resource providers at the event, which is open to all job seekers.
Governor Janet Mills said:
My Administration is committed to doing all we can to support our veterans, including assisting them in finding work. When our friends and family members come home from serving on the frontlines, they deserve every opportunity to find rewarding careers that utilize their extensive skills, diverse experiences, and unique training in the civil sector. Whether you are a transitioning veteran returning to or choosing the state of Maine as your new home, or whether you are a long-time Maine resident, making a career change or reentering the workforce, our Hire-A-Vet campaign can help you on your job search.
