Are you a military veteran? Looking for a career? Have questions about your GI benefits? Come to the Veterans Fair, Nov. 12, 10 a.m. - 2 p.m. at Mt. Hood Community College (MHCC) for information and guidance on how to get to that next place in your life.
The fair will be held in the Vista Dining Center, room AC2000 on the Gresham Campus, 26000 S.E. Stark Street. Parking is free on all MHCC campuses, no permit required.
The fair is sponsored by MHCC Veteran Services, WorkSource, Gresham United Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 180 and a number of employers. Participating industries looking to hire veterans include banks, healthcare, manufacturing, retail grocers, transportation and many more.
“Hiring veterans is not just about giving back to those who have served our country, it’s a smart business decision,” says Joshua Ray, Veteran Services coordinator. “Veterans have the skills and attributes that employers are looking for and a variety of programs are available to job-train veterans to meet the needs of business and industry. It’s definitely a win-win.”

MHCC has been awarded the 2014 Military Friendly School® designation. The designation honors the top 20 percent of colleges, universities and trade schools in the country that are doing the most to embrace America’s military service members, veterans and spouses as students and ensure their success on campus.
