HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) – The U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation is hosting a free Hiring Our Heroes Hiring Fair on Tuesday at the Huntsville Marriott located at 5 Tranquility Base. More than 30 companies are looking to hire Alabama veterans and their spouses.

The day begins at 8:30 a.m. with an employment workshop that focuses on resume-building, job searching and interviewing. There will be a hiring fair from 10:30 a.m. until 1:30 p.m.

There are more than 388,000 veterans in Alabama alone. Fortunately, many public and private sector business leaders want to support the military community which has resulted in a veteran unemployment drop since the 9-11 terrorist attacks.

Roughly 30 companies are participating in the job fair, including The Boeing Company and Tyson Foods. Job seekers can see the full list here.
