On March 20, 2013, USC hosted “Serving Those Who Have Served” a U.S. Veterans Hiring Event at USC Davidson Conference Center. Over 300 Veterans and representatives of 26 companies and businesses attended the one-day hiring event.
After an invocation and color guard salute, opening remarks were given by Dean Marilyn Flynn of the USC School of Social Work, one of several sponsors of the event, and attendees were welcomed by USC President C. L. Max Nikias via a video message. In the morning, the Veterans and Employers attended educational sessions where they were encouraged to network and also learned how military skills transfer to the corporate world. The career fair took place in the afternoon where Veterans could discuss potential job openings with hiring representatives from various companies for around Los Angeles.
