Service King Hosts DFW Mission 2 Hire Veteran Development Day in TX

Service King Collision Repair Centers, in continuation of its long-term Mission 2 Hire initiative, is set to host a comprehensive hiring fair and development day exclusively for DFW-area military veterans and family members. The event is scheduled for Dec. 3 inside Service King’s Regional Support Center located at 808 S. Central Expressway in Richardson, Texas.

The DFW Mission 2 Hire Development Day is free to U.S Armed Forces veterans and spouses beginning at 8 a.m., and will feature a variety of career development opportunities including expert leadership panel discussions, breakout workshops on a variety of career-readiness topics, a free networking lunch and more.

“This is yet another exciting opportunity for Service King and our very own teammates to reach out and provide tangible career opportunities to our nation’s heroes,” said Chris Abraham, Service King CEO. “The brave men and women who served in the U.S. Armed Forces exemplify the very skillsets, leadership and commitment to excellence that we strive to recruit for our team. The Mission 2 Hire initiative has helped us do that through hiring more than 50 veterans since May and we’re thrilled to boost that number with events like this.”

Since launching Mission 2 Hire in May, Service King has recruited and hired 57 U.S. Armed Forces veterans and family members at various positions within the organization.

Through Mission 2 Hire, Service King aims to hire more than 500 veterans in the next five years. In addition to this week’s Development Day, Veterans interested in career opportunities with Service King are encouraged to visit www.Mission2Hire.careers, a website built by Service King to easily view positions and match existing skillsets with available opportunities.
