Ticket Club and TicketNetwork representatives recently attended the 10th annual Heroes4Hire Career Fair in East Hartford, CT. The career fair is hosted every year by the Connecticut Department of Labor. The main goal is to help military veterans find suitable jobs and careers, as many of them transfer back into civilian life. Around 70 companies and organizations attended the event; it is one of New England’s largest job fairs.
While at the career fair, Ticket Club introduced its new Military Members campaign. Active duty and veteran U.S. military personnel are now eligible to receive free Ticket Club memberships. Ticket Club members do not pay service fees on concert, sport, or theater tickets. The website is also featuring military personnel and their personal stories of what has made them proud of their service.
TicketNetwork human resource representatives were there to recruit candidates for various positions such as Customer Service Representative, Network Security Engineer, and Database Trainee. TicketNetwork has continued to grow since it was founded in 2002 with four original employees. Today there are over 500 employees. One of the company’s own veterans, Corey Coffua, attended the career fair. He was able to share stories with the veterans as well as discuss his own personal growth at TicketNetwork as a Compliance Officer.
Overall the Heroes4Hire Career Fair had a great turnout. Over 1200 veterans were in attendance. The TicketNetwork and Ticket Club team met many admirable veterans who would make great addition to the company.
