Hiring Our Heroes with the SF Giants

For the third year in a row, JCRC is co-sponsoring a Hiring Our Heroes job fair with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation. This year we are happy to announce that we will once again be partnering with the San Francisco Giants!

The event, which will have a special focus on the tech sector, will take place in the morning on Thursday, August 17 at AT&T Park in San Francisco. As in prior years, we need help recruiting employers and getting the word out to veterans, and we will also need 6-8 volunteers for the event itself—all volunteers will receive a free ticket to that night’s Giants game!

JCRC will be hosting a planning call for the event on Wednesday, July 12th at 12:00 pm. If you are interested in learning more, message JCRC Development Manager Michael Benesch at
