The VeteransвЂ™ Expo & Job Fair is intended for active military and veterans of all ages, men and women, from all branches of service and their families.
The Expo is being held to ensure that eligible individuals are aware of the benefits they have earned.
Meet and talk to exhibitors who are interested in your wellbeing and represent businesses, community service providers, healthcare professionals, VA benefits organizations and education/training providers.
The Job Fair provides an opportunity for veterans and employers to meet face-to-face to discuss available positions. Additionally, workshops/seminars will be offered on topics, including resume writing, career planning, interviewing techniques, becoming an entrepreneur, and online job searching.

вЂњI liked the amount of employers and quality of job seekers. We met exceptional candidates who are willing and eagerly looking for work. I would recommend the job fair to both small and large business looking to hire. This year we met and hired a candidate from the Veterans expo. This is the third year we have attended the VeteransвЂ™ Expo and we will continue attending in the future.вЂќ вЂ“ Tom R., Recruiter, Aaron Enterprises, Inc.
вЂњI enjoyed spending the day at the EXPO. I thought it was very well organized, and had the veterans needs at heart. Thank you for that! I saw a great deal of people and businesses there who are interested in helping veterans. I would be happy to be included again. Anytime there is someone willing to reach to veterans that is a good thing. I was very appreciative of the opportunity to be there and help.вЂќ вЂ“ Phil P., York County Veterans Affairs Office
The event was great for us. There was a lot of traffic and we have already heard back from some of the attendees. You folks did a great job with marketing . вЂ“ Kelly L., Keystone College PACC*VISTA
вЂњI felt the event was outstanding (being a veteran myself)! I was able to network with several veteransвЂ™ service agencies, as well as with other excellent vendors. Professionally, [Lancaster County Career & Technical Center] was able to get some valuable exposure to a specific audience, generate awareness of the vocational training programs we offer, and mention of possible enrollment opportunities for job seekers.вЂќ вЂ“ Quentin M., Lancaster Country Career and Technology
вЂњThe VeteranвЂ™s Expo & Job Fair was a good networking and recruiting opportunity for Coin Wrap, Inc. There appeared to be a strong turnout for the job fair, including a variety of qualified job seekers, and the event provided a variety of resources to the veterans in the community. The overall event was professionally orchestrated and our experience was positive.вЂќ вЂ“ Krista D., Coin Wrap, Inc.
вЂњThe experience was very positive and it was humbling to have the opportunity to meet so many interesting people with exciting stories to tell вЂ¦ I am very excited to say that we did end up hiring one very strong candidate I met at the fair as an administrative assistant, and she has been doing a fantastic job thus far! I am very happy Cooper-Booth was invited to attend this event and look forward to doing so again next year! Thank you for all of your help and for the great things that you do for our veterans, as well as local businesses.” вЂ“ Rhiannah T., Cooper-Booth Wholesale Co.
