Where Opportunity Knox, a regional initiative to connect transitioning Veterans and/or military spouses to jobs and the Greater Louisville Region, continues to host Employer Showcases for Where Opportunity Knox clients, transitioning Veterans, their family members and Veteran higher education students.
Employer Showcases are an impactful way for transitioning military personnel to get a firsthand understanding of what it is like to work at some of our region’s great companies. Veterans can meet with key leaders and managers, experience a day in the life of the civilian workforce and gain a better understanding of different work environments and cultures.
Upcoming events include exclusive facility tours at:
- Amazon in Shepherdsville, Ky on Tuesday, July 10 from 9 – 11 AM ET.
- Altec in Elizabethtown, Ky on Thursday, July 12 from 5 – 8 PM ET.
- KEEN Footware in Shepherdsville, Ky on Friday, July 13 from 9 – 11 AM ET.
- Bean Suntory at the Jim Beam Distillery in Clermont, Ky on Wednesday, August 22 from 10:00 AM – 12:30 PM ET.
