MARIANNA – CareerSource Chipola is hosting a special hiring fair dedicated to employing veterans on November 18, 2021, from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m. 

The first 30 minutes of this Paychecks for Patriots event, held at Evangel Church in Marianna, will be reserved for veterans and their spouses before opening to the public.

To celebrate Veterans Day, the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity, the Florida National Guard, the Florida Department of Veterans’ Affairs, and participating Florida employers are partnering with CareerSource Florida regions to connect veterans with career opportunities to continue Governor DeSantis’ mission to be the most veteran-friendly state in the nation.

“We are grateful for the service of our veterans and are proud to work closely with them as they navigate civilian employment.”
