To kick off the Salute to Military Families, presented by your Chicagoland and Northwest Indiana Kia Dealers, the Chicago Wolves are hosting a pregame Military Resource Fair March 28 at Allstate Arena.
Attendees receive the chance to gather information and interact with various non-profits, companies and governmental agencies. Veterans can get information and ask direct questions about services and programs designed for them and their families, whether they are getting ready to be deployed or transitioning back to civilian life for the first time.
In addition, there will be companies looking to hire veterans and IL SHRM professionals will be on-site to help with resume and LinkedIn evaluation for veterans and their spouses.
