The Michigan Veterans Affairs Agency is bringing together community partners, college reps, employers, benefits counselors and others for a “one-stop” Veteran Expo in Detroit, MI. The Detroit Veteran Expo is one of 3 expos being hosted throughout the state of Michigan.

Hiring our Heroes will bring employers from throughout the region and state to the Veteran Expo for a Saturday only job fair. Employment specialists will be available both days to help veterans polish their resume and interviewing skills to ensure they are making the most of their military skills in the job market.

If a return to the classroom is in a veterans future, they can also talk with representatives from Michigan colleges and universities about opportunities to get college credit for their service, on-campus veterans’ programs, funding opportunities and other questions they have about returning to school.

The expos will offer ample opportunities for veterans to learn more about available services and resources in areas like housing, recreational opportunities, family support and more, and will serve as an opportunity for community organizations to reach out and honor veterans.  The VA will offer on-site health screenings, and benefits counselors will be available to help veterans learn more about and apply for the benefits they have earned through their service.

Each Expo will bring together the best of what’s available to help veterans succeed in whatever stage of life they are in. If you are a veteran, or know someone who is, register online today! Interested employers can also sign up to attend.
