HCA was one of sixty nine organizers at the recent Hiring Our Heroes/Recruit Military Opportunity Expo in Irving, Texas March 1, 2012 and we saw more than 1000 veteran and military spouses attend the event.
The veteran hiring effort in Irving was just one of the many events that HCA is participating in across its twenty-state network. We have events planned into May 2012 where our recruiters will continue to share information about all veteran opportunities.
HCA has over 4000 veteran hires to date and opportunities are growing. We encourage all of our veterans to make the transition to the civilian workforce with a career at HCA.
Please take a few minutes to check out the great media coverage of the March 1 event in the following links, which include video shots and interviews with veterans and recruiters:
