    Dear Alaska Employer,

    More than 77,000 veterans and their family members call Alaska home, in addition to the men and women still serving in the armed forces around the globe.  I’m writing today to ask for your support for those who have done so much to serve our country and state.

    Today’s veterans offer Alaska business the benefits of their vast competencies and the skills, education,  maturity, and dedication learned during their military service.

    Hiring a veteran is not just good will – it’s good business!

    You are cordially invited to participate in the Alaska Department of Labor and Workforce Development’s Veterans Career Fair from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Friday, Nov 9 at the University Center in Anchorage.

    Because of the generous sponsors – including Morris Alaska Media Group, Anchorage Chamber of Commerce and the University of Alaska Anchorage – there is no cost to participate, either for you as an employer or for our veterans, transitioning service members and their spouses. We would like to offer you the opportunity to help unemployed veterans by donating People Mover bus tokens.  The bus tokens will be given to veterans by the Job Center Veteran Representatives for work search purposes.

    This job fair will help you connect with and hire qualified workers who can positively affect your bottom line.  The Department of Labor & Workforce Development can make the process easy for you – a Veteran Friendly Employer who places high value on veterans’ teamwork, leadership, integrity and ability to get the job done.

    I hope to see you in Anchorage at the Veterans Job Fair on Nov 9.  Please complete the registration form by clicking on the link provided at the top of this page and email to me at or fax it to 269-4774.
