Earlier this week, I checked out one of the country’s biggest job fairs for war veterans — Hiring Our Heroes — in Manhattan’s financial district.
I wrote up my impressions at Forbes. In short: Everyone looked great, but everyone’s not getting a job.
Of course, the issue of veteran’s unemployment is much more complicated than dapper attire and HR reps. And there are some fantastic organizations (IAVA and VOWS, as I noted in the piece, chief among them) trying to improve job fairs and their subsequent outcomes for veterans.
