AUGUSTA, Maine (WABI) - Maine’s annual Hire-A-Vet Campaign begins next week with a virtual twist.

The statewide effort hopes to reach at least 100 employers who have committed to hiring at least 100 veterans and military family members.

The kick-off event September 15th will feature a virtual hiring fair from 1 PM to 4 PM after opening remarks.

More than 200 employers are expected to attend.

“We get more from hiring the veteran than they probably get from us," said Vice President of Dead River Company Guy Langevin. "They help us differentiate from our competitors who don’t focus on hiring veterans. This segment of the workforce is just a wealth of talent with a skill set that every employer needs.”

Since 2015, the campaign has connected nearly 1,000 employers with just over 1300 veterans.
