We want to thank the Seahawks and Boeing in Washington for their continued support of YesVets and many other veteran-related programs in the state.
YOUR Washington State Department of Veterans Affairs and dozens of other resource providers and more than 70 employers came together to hire more than 60 veterans during this year’s Seahawks Military Hiring & Resource Fair, held at Lumen Field on May 23rd.
This free event for military members, spouses, and their families provided numerous opportunities for attendees to learn more about their earned benefits and find their next job or career!
During the event, your WDVA was available with numerous program information and opportunities, with our Veterans Benefits Specialists, our Digital Navigator Program, Military Spouse Liaison, Vet Corps representatives, employment recruiters, our Apprenticeship program, and even provided delicious food with the assistance of several Certified Veteran Owned Business Food Trucks onsite as well. Several military vehicles were also on display for job seekers to check out while visiting the food trucks.
We want to thank the Seattle Seahawks, Boeing, Seahawks General Manager John Schneider (who also received the first-ever YesVets Military Champion Award), and all of the volunteers, employers, and resource providers for making this a successful event!
Mark your calendars for November 7th for the upcoming Seahawks and YesVets virtual hiring event to take place during the Seahawks’ Salute to Service Week of events.
