PDX Veterans in Technology is a veteran community dedicated to assisting active-duty, reservist, and returning veterans with reintegration into the local tech community. Our 501c3 organization is committed to helping create, advance, and maximize the careers of current veterans in technology in Portland, Oregon and the surrounding areas.
Our friends at Vetwork PDX are hosting a networking event at McMenamins Blue Moon Tavern & Grill in NW Portland. Vetwork PDX is a professional networking group for military veterans regardless of industry.

The folks at recruitmilitary.com are coming through town and hosting an event, this is not a tech-specific hiring event. Right now 28 companies are registered to be at the event, and the organizers are expecting 50. So far there's mostly public sector (government) organizations, but I expect there will be a combination of large and small businesses who sign up.
Check out details of companies involved and RSVP for the event here: https://success.recruitmilitary.com/events/portland-veterans-job-fair-may-9-2019
Be sure to check back on the website leading up to the event and see the new companies listed.
As a part of Pride Week, ODVA is hosting a documentary about LGBTQ veterans in Oregon. A local software company, Zapproved, is providing the venue for this event.

More details to come about this event. If you're interested in attending, please RSVP. We're envisioning a family-friendly event for our members who have young ones and want to do something outside of our regular networking events. Tentatively we're thinking Oaks Park on a Sunday afternoon in August potentially. We'll see what makes sense as people RSVP.
