ALBANY, GA—On June 12, 2013, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation will host “Hiring Our Heroes” in Albany, Georgia. The hiring fair will help brave veterans and military spouses in Albany find available jobs.
Several employers from companies ranging from America’s biggest employers to dozens of small companies from the region will be present at the hiring fair.
