Workforce Solutions Borderplex set to host annual ‘Red White & You!’ virtual hiring event

Workforce Solutions Borderplex (WSB) announced Thursday they will again host the 10th annual Hiring Red, White & You! statewide hiring event, in virtual form this year. 

“In October alone, an additional 4,162 unemployment claims have been filed in the Borderplex region, signaling an urgent need for work opportunities,” organizers shared. “All jobseekers are encouraged to participate in Red, White & You.”

This year’s event will be virtual and there are a multitude of work from home opportunities for veterans, military spouses, transitioning soldiers and the general public.

Launched in 2011 as a joint initiative hosted by the Texas Workforce Solutions, in partnership with office of the Governor, Texas Medical Center and the Texas Veterans Commission, Hiring Red, White & You! connects veterans and their spouses with employers who are seeking veterans’ exceptional skills.

Since 2011Hiring Red, White & You! has connected more than 98,600 job seekers, including 38,925 veterans and spouses, along with 16,650 employers and over 2,700 same-day hires.

Connecting Texas employers to qualified former U.S. military service members and their spouses can be an asset to businesses. Veterans are trained to adapt to change, take initiative and learn quickly.

“By hiring more veteran and veteran spouse candidates, employers can reduce turnover, maintain a more stable workforce over time, and employers who hire veterans and their spouses may earn up to $9,600 in federal tax credits through the Work Opportunity Tax Credit program.” WSB officials shared.

Nearly  100 employers from the Borderplex region’s most in-demand companies have confirmed participation, making this the biggest hiring event of the year.  Some of the employers committed to the event are listed here:
