Veteran Resources at 2014 Anaheim/OC Job Fair
This year's Anaheim/OC Job Fair and Expo had a record number of employers in attendance, offering more than 3,500 jobs. With a special focus on providing veteran services, nearly 150 veterans registered at this year's Job Fair. We're excited to share that we have already heard success stories. One Navy veteran who attended received three interviews and was already selected for employment by an Orange County-based company.

Veterans Resource Directory
The City of Anaheim's Veterans Resource Directory is for active service members, veterans, and their families. This guide provides information about current programs available in the Anaheim community. Anaheim recognizes that the transition into the civilian workforce and community can be challenging. This creates an important need for assistance when service members return home. Through this directory, veterans can connect to important local resources for employment, housing, education, health care, and more. For more information or to speak with a Anaheim representative dial 3-1-1.
