DEARBORN, Mich. — The U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation will host a job fair and employment workshop next week in Michigan for veterans and military spouses.

Organizers expect more than 100 companies to participate in the job fair, which is part of the foundation’s Hiring Our Heroes program. Veterans and their spouses can preregister at hiringourheroes.org. Walk-in job seekers are allowed, though veterans must provide proof of service.

The job fair runs from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Wednesday at Ford Community & Performing Arts Center in Dearborn. A two-hour workshop focusing on resume-building, job search tools, and interview skills will start at 8:30 a.m.
