Hire a Hero Veterans Job Fair Visited by Labor Secretary Jennifer Berrier in Chester, PA
Veteran support is a big priority in Pennsylvania, and Governor Tom Wolf is taking action to make sure the 26,000 Veterans in Delaware County have the resources they need to obtain training and employment. Funding for workforce development initiatives was granted in Delco and many offerings are emerging for Veterans. One recent initiative took place in our Chester, PA office where a successful Hire a Hero Veterans Job Fair was held to help educate Veterans about all the training, workshops, and employment-related resources and tools available to them. Part of Governor Wolf's funding is also being used by EDSI to offer Career Acceleration Programs (CAPs) for Veterans to receive fast-track training in the industry of their choice: IT, Construction/skilled trades, healthcare and customer service.
