Triton College holds Veterans Job Fair to help unemployment rate among vets

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE NOV. 2, 2015

While the unemployment rate for veterans is on the decline nationally, Illinois still reports a 7 percent unemployment rate (2014) - making it higher than the national average which was reported as 5.3 percent in 2014.

Triton College looks to further contribute to this decline by holding a Veterans Job Fair from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 10 in the Student Center Cafeteria, B Building.

All veterans in the community and their families are invited to this free job fair to speak with more than 70 area employers who are looking for qualified candidates to fill full-time, part-time and seasonal positions.

Bringing copies of one's resume is encouraged. Refreshments will be served.

Triton College is located at 2000 Fifth Ave., River Grove. For more information, call (708) 456-0300, Ext. 3805, or visit www.triton.edu.
