City of Phoenix Veterans Initiative​

In 2013, my colleagues on the City Council and I passed the H.E.R.O. Initiative, a program designed to address the high unemployment rate among veterans. As part of the initiative, the city is working with a broad coalition of community stakeholders and employers to host H.E.R.O. Hiring Events.

These events are much different than typical job fairs. They are smaller, more personal and our team does extensive groundwork in advance of the events to pre-match veteran job seekers and employers to ensure greater job placement. Also, prior to each hiring event, we offer a series of free workshops for veterans to assist with resume translation from military language to civilian, interview skills, and general career readiness.

If you are a veteran, looking for employment, you have come to the right place!

To obtain assistance with a job search, visit any of our One-Stop Career Centers.  Each One-Stop Center has a representative to assist veterans with resources and employment information.

Veterans Hiring Events

Veterans are invited and encouraged to attend hiring events in February and March.  Priority Service honoring vets opens an hour early at 11 am to noon at the February event.  Go to the Goodwill website to register for early entry into the event:

The March event also opens early for Veterans from 9:30 to 10 am.

Stop by the PWC booth at these events and drop off your resume/job information. This will help us  target employer invitations for the April H.E.R.O. Hiring Event to match Veteran Job interests.

For convenience, Veterans can also submit Job Search details here.
