Hiring Red, White and You! Statewide hiring event set for Nov. 8.

Posted: Updated:

The Texas Workforce Commission will host the seventh annual statewide Hiring Red, White and You! (HRWY) job fair on November 8, 2018. In cooperation with the 28 Local Workforce Development Boards, the Texas Veterans Commission, the Texas Medical Center, and Governor Greg Abbott, HRWY connects Texas veterans and their spouses with Texas employers that value the experience, discipline, and other exceptional qualities inherent in a military background.

Over 12,700 job seekers and over 1,800 employers attended the statewide HRWY job fairs in 2017. In the first six years, HRWYhas connected more than 71,800 job seekers, including 36,200 active duty military and transitioning service members, veterans, and spouses, to 10,300 employers, with over 1,700 same-day hires.

It is estimated that there are 1.7 million total veterans in Texas, of which 967,000 are working or actively seeking work. By holding HRWY job fairs across the state, Texas employers can more easily connect to this highly qualified group of servicemen and servicewomen across the state.
