Hiring Event Planned In Enid For Oklahoma Military Members And Civilians
Oklahoma CareerTech and its partners are planning an Oklahoma Military Connection hiring event for northwest Oklahoma in July.
The Oklahoma Military Connection hiring event is a state initiative sponsored by the Oklahoma Department of Career and Technology Education CareerTech for Vets program, the Oklahoma Department of Commerce, the Oklahoma Employment Security Commission and the Oklahoma National Guard Employment Coordination Program.
The hiring event will be from 10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. July 16 at Oakwood Mall in Enid. The entire event is open for U.S. military veterans, transitioning service members and Guard and Reserve members. The event will also open to the general public in the afternoon. It will be open to all job seekers from 12:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m.
“We believe this will help our employers have even more talent to choose from,” said David Crow with the Oklahoma Department of Commerce.
Participating employers will have jobs they are ready to fill and will be prepared to interview eligible applicants, said Amy Ewing-Holmstrom, CareerTech for Vets coordinator.
Registration at www.okmilitaryconnection.com is required to ensure job-seekers are matched with career fields with the employers at the hiring event. The goal is to make sure those who attend are pre-matched to companies that are compatible with their skills, Ewing-Holmstrom said.
