DENVER – The adage, “Dress for the job you want, not the job you have,” is still true today, especially in a tight labor market like Denver.
To help local job-seeking veterans get a boost up on the competition, Farmers Insurance will be donating hundreds of suits and pieces of business attire at a job fair Thursday.
More than one million military personnel will make the transition from the military in the next couple of years, according to the Department of Defense office of Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve, and many of these veterans may not own appropriate business attire to go to networking events, interviews or even to work.
Suits and business attire for both men and women will be distributed during the Denver Veterans Job Fair at Sports Authority Field at Mile High.
The event begins at 11 a.m. Attendees should enter through Gate 2 on the west side of the stadium. Free parking is available in Lot C. Veterans interested in attending can register by visiting this site.
The suit donation is part of the insurer group’s national ‘“Suits for Soldiers” campaign, which culminated in the collection of more than 70,000 articles of clothing countrywide in 2016.
