Cape Coral Daily Breeze

BAY PINES, FL -The Bay Pines VA Healthcare System will host a job fair Thursday, Aug. 2, from 58 p.m. in the J.C. Cobb room located in building 100 (main hospital building) of the C.W. Bill Young VA Medical Center. Parking will be available in the parking lot located adjacent to the medical center building.

The job fair will have special emphasis on employment opportunities for veterans and veterans with disabilities. Similar job fairs have been conducted in the past and have been instrumental in making employment connections for veterans seeking employment in the federal government.

Qualified applicants will be interviewed on the spot, and tentative job offers may be made that day. Applicants interested in positions in nutrition and food service, housekeeping and engineering are encouraged to bring their resume, DD214 (Member 4 Copy with Character of Service), VA letter showing disability rating, and Schedule A letter if applicable.

"Our organization has a very special and inspiring mission to honor America's Veterans by providing exceptional health care that improves their health and well-being," said Suzanne M. Klinker, director, Bay Pines VAHCS. "We have been able to fulfill this mission because of our dedicated workforce and our ability to find the best and brightest professionals to join our team."

More than 1,500 Bay Pines VAHCS employees previously served in the military. This number equates to approximately 35 percent of the current workforce.

"We have an unwavering commitment to support veterans. A big part of our mission is offering veterans statutory hiring preference, and, in some cases, non-competitive placement in various technical and professional occupations," said Jeffrey Hein-richs, Chief, Human Resources Manage-ment Service.

"Bay Pines is a place where veterans can grow a career, while sharing life experiences in an environment that can help others heal," he said.

For more information about the job fair, contact Brenda Sykes, Section Chief, Human Resources Management Service, at 727-398-6661, extension 10636.
