St. Paul – As Minnesotans prepare to mark Veterans Day on November 11, the Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development (DEED) and the Minnesota Department of Veterans Affairs (MDVA) invite participation in this year’s 14th annual Veterans Career Fair. The Minnesota Veterans Virtual Career Fair will take place online on November 19 from 2:00 to 6:00 p.m. Employers participating in the event are encouraged to offer full-time positions with family-sustaining wages and benefits.

“We want to invite all Minnesota military veterans and active service members, including National Guard members and reservists, and their spouses to meet employers who recognize and appreciate your military experience,” said DEED Commissioner Steve Grove. “If you’re looking for work now, or are considering a career move, this is a great opportunity to hear from hundreds of employers, meet virtually with those that interest you and share your skills and experience with them.”

“We want to thank all the great Minnesota employers who acknowledge the unique value those who serve or served in the military bring to their organization’s team,” said MDVA Commissioner Larry Herke. “Military service not only provides high-tech training and real world experience, it also builds character skills like integrity, leadership, teamwork and commitment to getting the job done right. Hiring a veteran is a great decision for an organization’s success.”

Governor Tim Walz proclaimed November 2020 as Veterans Month and the Veterans Virtual Career Fair is part of the State of Minnesota’s efforts to honor veterans during the month. Hundreds of employers are taking part in the Minnesota Veterans Virtual Career Fair, including the event’s lead sponsors, 3M, Ace Solid Waste, ACR Homes, Andersen Windows & Doors, Grand Casino and Titan Machinery. Organizations that provide employment, education and other services for veterans are also participating.
