HOUSTON — Employers can sign up for the Ellington Field Hiring Event for National Guardsmen, reservists, veterans and their spouses.

The event is May 14 at the Armed Forces Reserve Center at Ellington Field, 10940 Aerospace Ave.

Employers interested in participating can register online at the Military Spouse Corporate Career Network website at www.msccn.org/EllingtonField. They also can call the Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve Houston office at 281-929-2601.

There is no cost for employers. Last year, more than 100 employers participated.

The event is free with no advance registration required for National Guard and reserve personnel. All veterans and spouses must register to gain access to the base and must have a valid driver’s license.

All cars are subject to inspection. No weapons of any kind are permitted on the base.

The event will be in the Drill Hall at the Armed Forces Reserve Center at Ellington Field. Check in will begin at 9 a.m., with the job fair running from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

“Too many of our country’s citizens remain unemployed, but for our returning military veterans in the Guard and reserve, those numbers are still too high,” said Bill Cyrus, Eastern Region director of the Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve Texas Committee. “We hope all employers will take advantage of this opportunity to hire those that have put their lives at risk in service to our country.”
