Military Job Fair Scheduled May 23
The military community is invited to meet with recruiters from 75 businesses and government employers at the Seahawks Military Hiring and Resource Fair — powered by Boeing.

The event is open to members and families in all branches of the military: active duty, National Guard, Reserves and Veterans, as well as Department of Defense employees.

Full-time and part-time jobs will be available. Participating employers are YesVets members – those recognized for hiring Veterans.

“Veterans make up around 15% of Boeing’s workforce, and we know they make our company better,” said Devon Rumsey, a Veteran with Boeing’s Workforce Development Team. “We’ll be at the Seahawks Military Hiring and Resource Fair to help connect Veterans and their families with meaningful work in our community.”

More than two dozen Veterans-service organizations, including Task Force 12, will also be on hand to offer a variety of support services. Task Force 12 comprises the Seattle Seahawks and local grassroots nonprofits that support military service members, veterans and their families.

Job-search experts from WorkSource will be available to help job seekers improve their resumes and interviewing skills.
