On Tuesday, November 5th, 2013, The Execu|Search Group’s Lisa Carver, Lisa Morano, and Amanda Roubal participated in the Hiring Our Heroes Job Fair in Morristown, NJ. The event, which was hosted by the New Jersey Department of Military and Veterans Affairs (DMAVA) and organized by The Morris County Chamber of Commerce, the United States Chamber of Commerce Foundation, the American Legion, and other local NJ organizations, brought together employers and veterans, transitioning service members, and military spouses.
At the career fair, jobseekers had the opportunity to meet with over 40 prospective employers from the Morris County, NJ area, apply for jobs, and in some cases, even interview on the spot. “We feel privileged to have participated in this event,” says Lisa Carver, Managing Director of Temporary Staffing at The Execu|Search Group as well as a member of the Morris County Chamber of Commerce. “There’s so much hidden talent within the military community and unfortunately many have a difficult time finding jobs. Career fairs such as ‘Hiring Our Heroes’ support those who have served our country by giving them a shot and getting them back to work.”
This group of Americans possesses extraordinary skills that are transferable across any industry and the value they put into commitment and teamwork can benefit an organization in many ways.
