The fourth annual veterans hiring event, now led by the non-profit entity Hire MI Vet and sponsored by, among others, Rotary Club of Ann Arbor, was a resounding success. Over twenty Rotarians were on hand at the Washtenaw Community College facility to act as Ambassadors: greeting veterans, reviewing their resumes, and assisting them in making contact with exhibiting employers based on their background, skills, education and experience. Thirty-four employers sent representatives to interview interested veterans, and 76 veterans and family members were involved in the interviews, several of whom were hired that day. One employer called it, “…the best hiring event I have experienced in fifteen years of attending this type of event.”
