Fort Bragg Hosts Hiring Event Today

Companies are needing people in the next 30-60 days to fill positions.

Fort Bragg's Army Career and Alumni Program Center is hosting a hiring event for 150 pre-registered Soldiers and Family members, Dec. 11. The hiring event will take place from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., at the Fort Bragg Club.

Representatives from some of the nation's largest private organizations will meet Soldiers and spouses for job interviews based on information provided by prospective employees.

This is an Army hiring event, undertaken by the Army and Futures Inc., with the intent to get Soldiers into the civilian workforce, using many of the skills that were gained while in uniform.

"Unlike a job fair, the job seeker must prepare for the hiring event or they will not be selected to attend," said Bill McMillian, Fort Bragg Transition Services manager. "The better they prepare and follow guidelines, the greater the job seeker increases his or her chance of receiving a job offer, just like in the real world."

McMillian said the marketing of job seekers for the hiring event is focused on individuals that will be available within the next 30-60 days for employment.

Soldiers and Family members interested in participating in future hiring events should contact Fort Bragg's ACAP Center at (910) 396-2227/7188.
