Marysville Armed Forces Reserve Center hosts Snohomish County Regional Veterans' Job and Resource Fair April 10

MARYSVILLE — WorkSource Snohomish County, in partnership with the National Guard's Joint Service Support and the Fleet and Family Support Program, will be hosting the Snohomish County Regional Veterans' Job and Resource Fair on Tuesday, April 10, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Armed Forces Reserve Center in Marysville.

"Businesses are always eager to hire veterans, knowing that they have the discipline and the skills to be terrific employees," said James Lapsley Jr., local veterans employment representative for WorkSource Snohomish County. "The Job and Resource Fair will be an opportunity for veterans to talk to employers and veterans' service providers, and even to network with one another."

Veterans should bring copies of their resumes, dress for success and be prepared to be interviewed on site. Prospective attendees can preregister online at worksourceonline.com.

The Salvation Army Canteen will be on-site providing hotdogs, chips and soda at no charge, although they will be accepting donations, with all proceeds going toward aid for homeless veterans.

Businesses participating in the event and looking to hire veterans include the Snohomish County PUD, Border Patrol and Customs, Safeway, Aviation Technical Services, Lowe's, Smart Talent, the Port of Seattle and Snohomish County itself.

The Armed Forces Reserve Center is located at 13613 40th Ave. NE in Marysville.

WorkSource Snohomish County provides a wide range of employment and training-related services to local businesses and job candidates, and is an equal-opportunity partnership of organizations that provide employment and training services. Auxiliary aids and services are available upon request to persons with disabilities.
