Hiring Red, White, & YOU! Job Fair


2021 Event

Workforce Solutions of West Central Texas, in partnership with the Texas Workforce Commission, Texas Veterans Commission, and Texas Medical Center, hosted the 10th Annual Hiring Red, White, and YOU! Job Fair on Thursday, November 4, 2021 from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at the Taylor County Expo Center in the Display Building. 

Hiring Red, White, & YOU! is always free and open to the general public in addition to veterans and transitioning military. This year's event provided both in-person and virtual options for participation. Current and prior military, and their spouses were invited to attend during a priority access period from 10:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. the day of the event!


The Hiring Red, White, and YOU! event places an emphasis on hiring veterans and transitioning military personnel, who are equipped with countless skills and unique strengths from their time serving that are assets for civilian employment. It is also a great opportunity to reach job seekers of all skill levels, talents and experience. 

At the in-person event, employers receive a 10'x10' booth with electricity, one table, two chairs, and two lunches, all at no cost. Additional lunches can be purchased for $8 each using the online Lunch Payment Form.
