What is ‘Hiring our Heroes’
In March of 2011, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce launched Hiring Our Heroes, a nationwide initiative to help veterans and military spouses find meaningful employment. Working with a network of 1600 state and local chambers and other strategic partners from the public, private, and non-profit sectors, the goal was to create a movement across America in hundreds of local communities where veterans and military families return every day.
In their first 12 months, Hiring Our Heroes has hosted more than 190 hiring fairs in 48 states, Puerto Rico, and the District of Columbia; more than 9,500 have gotten jobs.
