Heinz Field to host job fair for veterans, spouses
A job fair for Pittsburgh-area veterans will be held July 11 at Heinz Field on the city’s North Shore.
The free event for veterans, military spouses, transitioning military, reservists and National Guard members will include more than 50 employers.
RecruitMilitary officials said the unemployment rate for military spouses is nearly 25%, more than six times the national average. The company has partnered with Google to create a job-search tool specifically for military spouses and veterans, and it has hosted more than 140 veteran job fairs in 2019.
From the City of Pittsburgh and Kraft Heinz to Farmers Insurance and U.S. Customs & Border Protection, the fair will present veterans and spouses with a wide array of career paths.
“We are pleased to provide these companies with access to the widest network of highly qualified veteran job candidates who are looking for meaningful civilian career opportunities,” says Tim Best, CEO of Bradley-Morris & RecruitMilitary.
Heinz Field is at 100 Art Rooney Ave. on the North Shore.
