(HRWY) job fair. The job fair will be held November 7th from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Freeman Coliseum Expo Hall C, located at 3201 E. Houston Street in San Antonio, Texas.

Although this event gives priority to Veterans, transitioning military, and their spouses, it is open to all job seekers. The first hour, 11 a.m. to noon, is dedicated to that target population, but the general public will not be turned away; and the remainder of the event, from noon until 3 p.m., will be open to everyone.

The HRWY job fair in San Antonio is one of the largest of many HRWY events held throughout the state, with more than 160+ quality employers hiring at a range of $15 an hour and up.

A Veterans Information Village consisting of 55 Veterans service organizations will also be on-hand to answer questions and provide resources ranging from LinkedIn representatives, resume reviews, educational opportunities, VA benefits, and more. More than 1,400 job seekers are currently registered to attend, with additional job seekers expected to register in the coming days. 
New this year will be an interactive Work In Texas display featuring large touch screens, with staff on-hand to assist attendees in registering on the updated WorkInTexas.com platform. 

There will also be a professional photographer available to take head shot photos for attendees to add to their LinkedIn profiles.
