A job fair hosted by the New York National Guard takes place at the Farmingdale Armed Forces Reserve Center in February, 2012.

NEW YORK - The New York National Guard will host a Hiring Our Heroes Veteran's Job Fair, March 27, at the Lexington Avenue Armory in Manhattan.

The United States Chamber of Commerce event is sponsored by Capital One and Toyota. The fair is designed to allow National Guard soldiers and airmen, military Reserve members, active duty service members, veterans and military spouses to submit applications to prospective employers and also learn how to use job-hunting tools.

The event will be covered by NBC's Today Show and WNBC. Gen. (R) Eric Shinseki, the Secretary of Veterans Affairs, is expected to attend and address those in attendance.

Maj. Gen. Patrick Murphy, the adjutant general of New York, will also be speaking at the event.

The New York National Guard's Job Zone Program will be part of the Hiring Fair as well. The New York National Guard's Employment Initiative Program helps New York National Guard soldiers and airmen refine their resumes while providing them with information on employers who want to hire veterans and Guard members. The Job Zone staff also works to help employers understand the skill-sets that veterans and Guard soldiers and airmen bring to their businesses.

Doors to the event open at 6 a.m. The Job Fair itself runs from 8 a.m. to noon.

Note to editors: Retired Command Sgts. Maj. John Willsey and Robert Van Pelt, who run the New York National Guard Employment Initiative Program, are available to speak with members of the media about the program. Call the Division of Military and Naval Affairs Public Affairs Office at 518-786-4581 to set up an interview or see them at Lexington Avenue Armory on the day of the event.
