At the event, employers from various industries, including hospitality, security, transportation, education, healthcare and others, will meet one-on-one with job seekers.
While these hiring events are usually exclusive to veterans, tomorrow’s program will be open to the general public.
Rashida Williams, workforce development coordinator for U.S. VETS Las Vegas, anticipates more than 150 job seekers will be in attendance.
“There are numerous benefits to hiring veterans. They have a strong work ethic and strong leadership potential. They also tend to stay at jobs longer and aren’t just looking to get in and move onto another company,” shared Williams.
As a veteran-founded company, one of Reliance’s goals is to support veterans.
“We’ve developed a great partnership with U.S. VETS. These events not only help us to recruit military trained individuals, which is ideal for the security industry, but also allow us to give back to our community by employing those who have served us. We’re dedicated to helping them find meaningful jobs,” said Joel Logan, CEO at Reliance Security.
Reliance has participated in U.S. VETS’ Employer Connecting Hiring Event for two years and has hired approximately 15 veterans as a result. Tomorrow, Reliance’s team will be looking to hire managers and security officers.
Williams continued, “The Reliance team has been exceptional to work with. They are committed to helping veterans find the right fit. Ron Gibson [Director of Operations at Reliance] is a tremendous asset. He has gone above and beyond to ensure veterans receive great care and have a clear path to return to work.”
Job seekers are encouraged to dress professionally and bring copies of their resume along with them.
In addition, Gibson offers a piece advice for anyone who plans to attend.
“Be honest and ready to work if the opportunity is mutually beneficial.”
For those unable to attend, U.S. VETS Las Vegas hosts four events each year with the next one taking place on March 25.
Binion’s Gambling Hall (Longhorn Room) is located at 128 Fremont Street, Las Vegas, 89101.
