ASA Partners with U.S. Chamber to Hire Heroes

Itasca, IL - March 27, 2014 - ASA is in the beginning stages of developing a comprehensive career recruitment site to build our industry’s bench. A large part of this strategy is to connect with veterans and transitioning military personnel who are looking to build their careers outside of the military.  As a part of this strategy, ASA has become a sponsor of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s nationwide program called Hiring Our Heroes. Their goal is for private industry to hire 500,000 veterans and spouses. “Our pledge was to assist in this goal by trying to place 1000 veterans in jobs within the PHCP/PVF industry,” said ASA Executive Vice President Mike Adelizzi. “Instead of recreating the wheel, we have chosen to partner with the Chamber’s Hiring Our Heroes program, which is already halfway to their goal. We can work to help them get over the goal line,” he added.

Currently, there are hundreds of planned Hiring Our Heroes career events scheduled throughout 2014 across the country.  Click here to find an interactive map with locations and dates of upcoming events.  Click here to get more information on how to participate in an upcoming event.  ASA is urging all of our members and their branch locations to register to take a table and have your company represented at these free events.  Thousands of veterans and transitions veterans and their families are looking for good opportunities.  The Chamber has done a great job of speeding up the process of our industry connecting with this valuable labor pool.
