2019 Event

Workforce Solutions of West Central Texas, in partnership with the Texas Workforce Commission and Texas Veterans Commission, hosted the 8th Annual Hiring Red, White, and YOU! Veterans Job Fair on Thursday, November 7, 2019 from 10 am to 2 pm at the Taylor County Expo Center in the Exhibit Hall. With nearly 70 employers and 400 job seekers in attendance, this was our largest event to-date!

This event is always free and open to the general public with priority access for current and prior military, spouses, and family members!


The Hiring Red, White, and YOU! event places an emphasis on hiring former military personnel, who are equipped with countless skills and unique strengths from their time serving that are assets for civilian employment. It is also a great opportunity to reach job seekers of all skill levels, talents and experience. At the event, employers have a 10 by 10-foot booth with electricity, one table, two chairs, and two lunches, all at no cost. Free wireless internet is also available.
