San Mateo, CA - Jackie Speier (D-San Francisco/San Mateo) applauded the President for announcing his plans to put veterans back to work while adding, “ I have good news of my own today  for veterans in the Bay Area—employers are ready to hire!”
Speier said that within only two weeks’ time, 25 Bay Area employers have asked to participate in her 8th Job Hunters Boot Camp set for Tuesday, March 13, 2012 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the San Mateo County Fairgrounds, 1346 Saratoga Drive, San Mateo.  This combination job fair-job search training event is free to both employers and job seekers.  Speier hopes to add more employers over the next month.
Speier added, “This is one boot camp veterans will enjoy. They will not only be thanked for their service, but they’ll have an opportunity to sharpen their job searching skills while talking to representatives from companies that are ready to hire.“ Veterans and non-veterans are encouraged to participate.
