WRIGHT-PATTERSON AIR FORCE BASE – The Military Veterans Resource Center invites all job seeking veterans to attend the fourth annual “New Year, New Career,” military career fair, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 12, 2017.

The career fair is free of charge for attendees and will feature more than 40 of Dayton’s top employers. The event will take place at the Hope Hotel & Richard C. Holbrooke Conference Center, located at 10823 Chidlaw Road adjacent to Wright-Patterson Air Force Base.

“Companies across industries will be looking for qualified veterans to fill immediate openings,” said Len Proper, executive director of Military Veterans Resource Center. “Last year, more than 200 military job seekers attended. Many received interview invitations on the spot and were quickly hired.”
