Top Companies Seek To Hire U.S. Military Veterans In Dallas

JPMorgan Chase (NYSE: JPM) and the 100,000 Jobs Mission will host a major hiring event in Dallas for U.S. military veterans, transitioning service members, Guard and Reserve members and military spouses on April 11 from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Dallas Convention Center.

More than 70 employers will be there recruiting military talent seeking to fill over 5,000 jobs in the Dallas area – and over 80,000 jobs nationwide – ranging from entry-level to managerial positions. The companies span a number of industries from technology, energy and retail to financial services, defense and telecommunications.

Online retailer Amazon, a member of the 100,000 Jobs Mission, recently announced it will build three new fulfillment centers in the state of Texas, including two in the Dallas-metro area. Todd Davis, director of recruiting for Amazon’s operations said, “We’re excited to be a part of the 100,000 Jobs Mission and to bring our recruiting teams to the hiring event in Texas to meet potential candidates.”

The 100,000 Jobs Mission was launched in 2011 by JPMorgan Chase and 10 other companies with the goal to collectively hire at least 100,000 U.S. military veterans by 2020. In two years, the coalition has grown to 99 companies that have collectively hired more than 51,000 veterans.

“Dallas is home to thousands of transitioning military members and veterans who have the skill sets companies need. This hiring event will provide excellent career opportunities for veterans who have made tremendous sacrifices for our nation,” said Anne Motsenbocker, Dallas Regional Chamber Chairman of the Board and President of JPMorgan Chase in Dallas.

Job seekers are highly encouraged to register online prior to the event .

The hiring event model used by the 100,000 Jobs Mission differs from a traditional job fair in that hiring managers will be on site to interview candidates and possibly make job offers on the spot. Job seekers are encouraged to register and upload their resumes prior to the event so that participating companies can review them and schedule interviews for that day. Many of the recruiting teams are comprised of former military members who can translate military experience into civilian jobs.
