Expand Your Talent Pool By Hiring Service Members, Veterans, and Military Spouses

The Kentucky Chamber Foundation's Workforce Center is hosting the Military Hiring Academy Cohort 2 in May 2024! The Military Hiring Academy, presented by the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport, aims to provide businesses with training and experiences to find, hire, and retain military talent (veterans, service members leaving the military, and military spouses). This initiative bridges the gap between businesses' need for employees and those in the military community looking for meaningful civilian employment. The Academy will also help businesses discover and discern what support services are available and appropriate for their hiring and retention needs. No employer has to navigate this alone!

Training Includes:

  • Learning best practices for finding, hiring, and retaining talent from the military
  • Connecting with support resources
  • Completing the Society for Human Resource Management “Veterans at Work” certificate
  • Attending a military installation job fair
