It will happen at the “Ready Now!” job fair. The fair is meant to make the process of finding work for returning military veterans easier.

Job seekers will have the opportunity to meet in small groups with professionals as well as employers to improve on resume writing and interview skills.

On the last day of the fair, job seekers are guaranteed an interview with two of the 15 companies that are participating.

The job fair runs from Wednesday to Friday at Grand Valley State University’s Kirkhof Center on the Allendale campus. On Wednesday and Thursday, the fair will start at 7:30 a.m. and end at 4 p.m. and it will start again at 10 a.m. and go until 4 p.m. on Friday.

Anyone interested in attending can register at the Michigan Works! website.
