Hiring Our Heroes


Join us July 30, 2014 from 12:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. for a job fair for veteran job seekers, active duty military members, guard and reserve members, and military spouses at the University of Chicago, Ida Noyes Hall 1212 East 59th Street, Chicago, Illinois 60637.

Veterans, active duty military members, guard and reserve members, and military spouses are invited to attend the first Nonprofit Hiring Fair for Veterans. This event, which is the first in the country, is specifically designed to present employment opportunities within local nonprofit organizations to the military community.

Veterans are reliable, trainable, flexible, and have a passion to serve their nation; these skills and experience make them suitable candidates for business and governmental roles and as stewards of the public trust in the philanthropic and nonprofit sectors. This unique hiring event is limited to certified nonprofit organizations who are seeking to hire veterans and military spouses as full or part-time employees, interns, or volunteers.

Charities and Foundations with IRS status with employment opportunities are invited to attend at no cost. If you have questions on eligibility please contact Mark Scott at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

The Nonprofit Hiring Fair for Veterans is sponsored by the Robert R. McCormick Foundation, dedicated to increasing the number of veterans working in the philanthropic and nonprofit employment sector. An employment workshop aimed at helping veterans and transitioning service members leverage military experience to achieve civilian career goals will begin at 11:00 a.m.

Event Schedule:
Employment Workshop: 11:00 a.m.
Hiring Fair: 12:00 p.m. - 3:00 p.m.
