Hiring our Heroes event kicks off at United Center

CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) - A job fair is kicking off at the United Center Thursday for a group of people that really deserve it: Veterans.

There are nearly 92,000 veterans in the city of Chicago alone. Even in times of low unemployment, veterans, transitioning service members and spouses are always in need of additional support in their efforts to find a new job or find a better job. 

That's why the the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation, the Chicago Bulls, Aon and BP America are coming together to host a Hiring Our Heroes job expo featuring more than 50 companies. 

The event will take place at the United Center from 8:30 a.m. until 1:30 p.m.  And all pre-registered veteran and military spouse who attend the hiring event can get two free tickets to attend Thursday night's Chicago Bulls game against the Oklahoma City Thunder.
