potential employees possessing proven skills.
businesses and organizations are already participating in the event being held
from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Rentschler Field
Ballroom in East Hartford. Some spaces still remain and employers interested in
taking part in the career fair can obtain a registration form by going to the
Connecticut Department of Labor’s Web site at

in a central location, with individuals who bring with them already-developed
skills that will work to an employer’s benefit,” Mayfield noted. “Our former
service personnel are a dedicated group of men and women that will most
certainly be an asset to any company looking for knowledge and experience, in
addition to a strong sense of teamwork, organization and leadership skills.”

Connecticut Department of Veterans Affairs and CBS Radio. There is no
admission charge for attendees and free parking is plentiful.
