The Illinois Inauguration 2015 Committee today announced the addition of a veterans hiring fair to the “Illinois is Back Exposition.”

The veterans hiring fair, scheduled for Sunday, January 11, will focus on connecting Illinois companies with the men and women who have served our country.

“The men and women who wore our nation’s uniform put everything on the line to defend our freedom,” Governor-elect Rauner said. “The least we can do is make sure they have good jobs when they come home.”
