Sponsored by southernctjobs.com, a division of Hearst Media Services CT, and Building and Land Technology (BLT), the event will take place at BLT headquarters, 100 Washington Blvd. in Harbor Point from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Among employers signed up to attend: Northwestern Mutual, Banker's Life, Baker Concrete Construction, David Lerner Associates, Connecticut Business Systems, WWE, New York Life, Sears, Aerial Electric, Securitas, Norwalk Fire Department, U.S. Judicial Marshals, and Post University.
In addition to companies recruiting for employees, there will be two panel discussions on employment-related topics of interest to veterans.
Speakers will include Vaesna Roeun, from the state Department of Labor's Veterans Employment Workforce unit; Linda Cawley of Wounded Warriors, and Joe Carbone of The Workplace.
Attendees will also have the opportunity to have their resumes reviewed and critiqued.
Representatives of the Save a Suit Foundation, whose "Soldiers to Civilians" initiative provides veterans with professional business attire, will also be in attendance.
