AURORA - Veterans returning to the general population oftentimes have trouble finding a job.
To help out, the Illinois Dept. of Employment Security and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce is bringing back its Hire Our Heroes program. It's set for Oct. 4 from 10am-4pm at the Plumbers and Pipefitters Local 501 hall at 1295 Butterfield Road. An employment workshop also will be available at 9am.
IDES suggests anyone interested in attending pre-register for the event. Officials say it improves the likelihood of on-the-spot interviews and potential job offers.
