The Career Expo will take place on Nov. 6, 2014 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at 6815 Rustic St., Houston, TX 77087. Over 50 employers and 10 veteran agencies will be available to assist veterans at the event. Five different workshops will provide essential information on employment for the anticipated 500 attendees. Despite their experience and wide range of skills acquired through training, the unemployment rate for veterans sits higher than the civilian one, especially for new veterans returning from Iraq and Afghanistan. Many people, including First Lady Michelle Obama, have begun to focus on the employment opportunities available to veterans as troops are being withdrawn from abroad. Houston Community College Chancellor Dr. Cesar Maldonado, Southeast College President Dr. Irene Porcarello and other special dignitaries are expected to attend Interested veteran jobseekers should register at tinyurl.com/veteranjobfair
