Where Opportunity Knox, a regional initiative to connect transitioning Veterans and/or military spouses to jobs and the Greater Louisville Region, continues to connect Veteran talent to our employers in our region. Recently launched “Employer Showcases” have proven to be an impactful way for transitioning military personnel to get a firsthand understanding of what it’s like to work at some of our region’s great companies. Employer Showcases provide Where Opportunity Knox clients the opportunity to explore available job opportunities in a hands-on way, engage with those who are doing the jobs today and hear from company leadership about career opportunities.
TQL hosted the first Employer Showcase for 2017 in mid-January. TQL is the second largest freight brokerage firm in North America – connecting companies needing products hauled with carriers delivering goods. The company’s ability to connect customers to the hundreds of thousands of trucks belonging to carriers and owner-operators creates greater efficiency in transportation and keeps the nation’s economy moving.
Where Opportunity Knox’s Veteran clients had the opportunity to experience what it’s like to be a TQL employee as they worked alongside the current TQL team. And TQL had the opportunity to showcase their company to some outstanding Veteran talent. A win-win!
The next Where Opportunity Knox Employer Showcase will be at GE Appliances, a Haier Company on February 23rd. If you would like to be part of Where Opportunity Knox, or if you are part of a company that wants to connect with these Veteran job seekers, please visit www.whereopportunityknox.com for more information.
Where Opportunity Knox is funded through the generous support of the Duke Energy Foundation, the Gheens Foundation, the James Graham Brown Foundation and the Ogle Foundation.
