Nelnet Looking to Hire Our Heroes

Participating in a One-of-a-Kind Hiring Fair for Veteran Job Seekers, Active Military Members, and Spouses

LINCOLN, Neb., April 23, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Nelnet is committed to recruiting and assembling the best teams of motivated, dedicated, and enthusiastic individuals that can work together to reach the common goal of making our customers the top priority. This is why Nelnet is proud to participate in the nationwide Hiring Our Heroes campaign, in search of talented men and women of the United States Armed Forces who have a variety of skill sets that would fit well into Nelnet's fun, innovative, fast-paced work environment.

The cornerstone of the Hiring Our Heroes program is the free hiring fairs that are held across the country to assist veterans and their families in their job searches. One such hiring fair will be held at the Lancaster Event Center located at 4100 N. 84th Street, in Lincoln, Nebraska, on Tuesday, April 24, from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., where the Nelnet Talent Acquisition and Recruiting team will have a booth to discuss with job seekers the exciting opportunities that Nelnet has to offer.

Nelnet Talent Acquisition and Recruiting Manager Jeff Werley said, "We are excited to be able to participate in this new event, and we are looking forward to this unique opportunity to meet with veterans about potential careers with Nelnet."

Not only will Nelnet speak to job seekers about the employment opportunities available within the organization, but will also offer veterans and their families the ability to be successful with other companies through the services of ResumeEdge, a leading provider of resume writing services. To thank veterans and military members for their service, Nelnet is proud to offer a discount on resume services being offered by ResumeEdge.

Werley added, "As a veteran, I understand the challenges military members face in transitioning their military skills to civilian skills, and can speak to their experience in having to prepare their resumes accordingly. ResumeEdge is an expert in military-transition resumes, and can simplify the process significantly."

This hiring fair is a one-of-a-kind free event for veteran job seekers, active duty military members, Guard and Reserve members, and eligible spouses to meet employers who are committed to hiring our veterans and military members. Job seekers are strongly encouraged to register here for this event. Pre-registration is not required; however, space is not guaranteed. If assistance is needed to register, job seekers can contact hiringourheroes@uschamber.com.

This hiring event is being conducted by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, the Lincoln Chamber of Commerce, the Lincoln Community Foundation, the Nebraska Department of Economic Development, the Nebraska Department of Labor, the Nebraska Department of Veterans Affairs, the Department of Labor's Veterans' Employment and Training Service (DOL VETS), the Nebraska Committee of the Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR), NBC News, and other local partners.
