APRIL 5 – The Indiana Department of Veterans Affairs plans a community outreach event for May at Trine University’s Fort Wayne location.

The event is from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Thursday, May 19, at the Fort Wayne Regional Education Center, 9910 DuPont Circle Drive East, Suite 130, Fort Wayne.

This will be a one-stop shop for veterans, service members and dependents. Employers at the event will conduct pre-interviews. Attendees of the event are encouraged to wear business casual attire and bring a resume, if they have one.

Indiana Department of Veterans Affairs members will be able to help with resume writing, interview preparation and conducting a job search. The women’s veteran coordinator and other VA members will assist and answer questions about remission of fees, VA benefits, claims process, care employment, education and much more.
