Texas Governor Invites Texas Veterans to Statewide Hiring Event
Texas Governor Greg Abbott is inviting Texas veterans, service members, and veteran spouses to participate in the upcoming 2023 Hiring Red, White, & You! statewide hiring fair that starts today, November 1, and runs through November 17.
“One of the many reasons our state is the economic engine of America is we continue to encourage employers to tap into the talent of our brave veterans who selflessly answered the call to serve our nation,” said Governor Abbott. “From leadership skills, high-quality professionalism, and mission-driven mindsets, Texas veterans bring a competitive advantage to any Texas business.
The event is being hosted by the Texas Workforce Commission in partnership with the Office of the Governor, local workforce development boards, the Texas Medical Center, and the Texas Veterans Commission. The Hiring Red, White & You! statewide veterans hiring fair is designed to connect military veterans, transitioning service members, and their spouses with Texas employers who rightfully seek veterans with exceptional skills and experience.
There is a bonus for employers from the state as well, businesses that hire veterans may be eligible for the Work Opportunity Tax Credit. This tax credit allows employers to receive up to $9,600 of federal business income or payroll tax benefits when they hire certain qualified groups of veterans.
The 2023 Hiring Red, White & You! statewide veterans hiring fair is free to attend and open to military veterans, transitioning service members, and their spouses. Job seekers can find more details on dates and locations at twc.texas.gov/hiring-red-white-you.
