WACO, Texas – The Greater Waco Chamber is pleased to announce AT&T as the 2018 presenting sponsor for the Find Your Waco Life Fair. This event will be on Friday, Oct. 26, from 1 to 4 p.m. at the Freedom Fountain at the Waco Convention Center. This unique event is free to attend and is open to the public.
AT&T released the following statement, “Building on their strong commitment to military veterans and at-risk student, AT&T is a leading sponsor of the inaugural Find Your Waco Life Fair event. This innovative event will help transitioning soldiers, students and more find their best fit – from their careers to where they live — in this growing community. AT&T believes military experience – leadership, integrity and commitment to service – makes veterans outstanding employees and has added 10,000 of these men and women to their team since 2013 and looks forward to hiring another 10,000 by 2020. In addition to veteran transition, AT&T invests education and job training to create a skilled and diverse workforce. Since 2008, AT&T has committed $450 million to programs to help millions of students in all 50 states and around the world through the AT&T Aspire initiative. AT&T Aspire brings together the power of the AT&T network – from employees, to technology and to organizations – to connect people to opportunities through education and job training.”
The afternoon event will be a great opportunity for people of all ages and backgrounds to come and connect with businesses across the community. Job seekers, students, transitioning soldiers and visitors will be seeking career/internship opportunities, searching for places to call home, finding groups they can plug into and discovering the unique flavors, activities and fun that Waco has to offer.
