The event is geared toward more than just students, however. Its afternoon session is for veterans and active military personnel, as well as other job-seekers referred by public and private agencies.
Isaac Levi, veterans employment representative for Worksource Oregon, organized the effort to spread the word to veterans in the area.
“I think this opportunity is absolutely important and vital as far as offering veterans opportunities,” he said. “It gives them the opportunity to give their resume directly to the employer, and it gives them a sense of hope that no matter whether they are on the skill-set range, there’s opportunities for them.”
