LEESBURG, Va., July 19, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- A win-win opportunity for employers and American veterans will occur on Wednesday, July 25 -- a virtual career fair sponsored by Hire Our Heroes.

THE BEST WAY TO HONOR A VETERAN IS TO HIRE ONE! National Hire A Veteran Day - July 25th -

The career fair is a win for employers because they will have the opportunity to communicate with veterans who have great job skills and have excelled in the most difficult job -- fighting for their country. The fair is a win for veterans because they will have the opportunity to learn about jobs and careers that could significantly improve their lives.

The 3rd Annual Hire Our Heroes Virtual Career Fair for veterans will be held on July 25 between noon and 3 p.m. Eastern Time (9 a.m. to 12 p.m. Pacific Time).

"American veterans made countless sacrifices for their nation," said Dan Caporale, the president of Leesburg, Va.-based Hire Our Heroes, an organization operated by veterans for veterans. "The veterans we help risked their lives for Americans' freedom and safety. They also sacrificed years, money, job opportunities, and chances to be with their families. I'm tempted to say that employers have a chance on July 25 to reward veterans for their sacrifices, but the truth is that the veterans have a chance to reward employers because they will be great employees."

Virtual career fairs are a unique opportunity for employers and employees because they're held online and, thus, don't require participants to travel to meet each other. In a virtual career fair, an employer can communicate information about jobs via chat rooms, email, teleconferences, webcasts, and webinars. During the same fair, a prospective employee can scrutinize the online "booths" of employers as well as job opportunities, and send their resume to an employer directly.

This virtual career fair is on July 25th 2018, Hire Our Heroes National Hire A Veteran Day and is strictly for veterans. This website details jobs that Hire Our Heroes knows about and companies it has featured because of their willingness to provide jobs for veterans.

These are the kinds of jobs and companies that could be available at the Hire Our Heroes Virtual Career Fair. This website details how an employer can participate in the fair. This Facebook page has information on the fair and Hire Our Heroes' job board as well as links to articles with job search tips.

"Based on our past virtual career fairs, Hire Our Heroes expects that there will be countless opportunities for companies and veterans alike that participate in the July 25 fair," said Caporale. "Veterans will have an opportunity to consider jobs in Accounting, Cyber Security, Engineering, Finance, Healthcare, Information Technology, Management, Marketing, Sales, and many skilled trades."

Caporale said the veterans Hire Our Heroes helps not only have experience in these fields, but they have proven while they were veterans and in their non-military jobs that they are high-level achievers who are dependable, disciplined, enthusiastic about work, and excellent team players. "They've received first-rate training from the U.S. military -- perhaps the most demanding organization in the world -- and have been tested many times in high-pressure situations," he said. "They know how to get the job done."

Hire Our Heroes offers all of its services free to all veterans. Additionally there are multiple partnerships in place that help both sides connect the dots. There are too many to list but some additional services offered include:
