Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Veterans’ Expo & Job Fair events for Lebanon County, York County and the Capital Area have been combined and redesigned to serve the community virtually.
Originally planned for separate central Pennsylvania locations this fall, the now-virtual Veterans’ Expo will be available online Sept. 15-30 at www.veteransexpo.com.
Presented by OLP Events, the Veterans’ Expo connects active and retired military members and their families with benefits and resources available to them through local community-service providers, healthcare professionals, VA benefits counselors, VFWs and American Legions.
Exhibitors also include continuing-education opportunities and a broad range of businesses, from home improvement, legal services and finance to retirement living and insurance.
The Job Fair has transitioned to virtual as well and has been widened in scope to include both veterans and the area’s civilian community.
Running concurrently with the Veterans’ Expo, the Jobs717 job fair will be open Sept. 15-30 and can be accessed at www.jobs717.com and is open to jobseekers and employers in or near the 717 area code.
During Jobs717, individuals seeking employment can browse through employer thumbnails and select the companies of their choice to learn more information.
Each employer’s custom page will include their company information, website link, job vacancies, social media links, and contact info so jobseekers can connect one-on-one with company representatives.
Employers will represent a large range of industries, including construction, management, administrative/clerical, warehouse, sales, customer service, manufacturing, banking, computer tech/IT and others.
Event sponsors include 50plus LIFE; American Legion Department of Pennsylvania; Church & Dwight Co., Inc.; BusinessWoman magazine; Disabled American Veterans; Pennsylvania State Headquarters VFW; and WHTM abc27.
Sponsorship and exhibitor opportunities are still available. For more information, call (717) 285-1350 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
