GRAFENWOEHR, Germany — The U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation’s Hiring Our Heroes program will sponsor three career summits in Europe during March and April.

 

The first one will be held at U.S. Army Garrison Italy, March 28-29, and the others at USAG Bavaria, April 1-2, and USAG Rheinland-Pfalz, April 3-4.


 

The summits feature career-planning workshops, industry briefs, panel discussions with employers, individual coaching for resumes, interviews and LinkedIn, networking receptions, and career fairs — all aimed at helping transitioning service members, veterans and military spouses engage with employers and build careers.

 

The summit at USAG Bavaria takes place at the Multipurpose Facility, Bldg. 134, on Rose Barracks. The current schedule includes the following:

 

MONDAY, APRIL 1

  • 1 – 4 p.m.: Career fair with national and local employers

 

The summits are free and open to active-duty service members, Guard and Reserve, veterans and military spouses. Summit organizers encourage attendees to register online prior to the event.

 

The Hiring Our Heroes program launched in March 2011 as a nationwide initiative to help veterans, transitioning service members, and military spouses find meaningful employment opportunities. The program has held over 1,100 hiring events and helped more than 30,000 veterans and military spouses find jobs.
