Dear Editor;

I am retired from the U.S. Army and currently operations administer at Brookdale Community College. I am coordinating a Veterans Job Fair to be held August 27 at the Brookdale Lincroft main campus. The event also welcomes friends, family and community who are seeking employment or services. It will be held from 9:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. in the Warner Student Life Center.

We have the goal of 100 vendor participants who may attend the event at no charge. To date, the response has been great. We also have workshops such as the New Jersey Small Business Development Center at Brookdale Community College to present on how to start a small business and how to apply for small business loans. NJVet Biz will be conducting a presentation, “Business Assistance for Veterans – Fact vs Fiction.”

We couldn’t do this event without the generous sponsor support of the Jersey Shore Jewish War Veterans Post 125-Ocean Township, the Monmouth County One Stop Career Center Neptune NJ, Monmouth County Workforce Investment Board and the NJSBDC at Brookdale Community College.

If any vendors just learning of this event would like to be part of the Job Fair, Please contact me at 732-224-2068 or e-mail to  This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. And be sure to spread the word about this free event for the community.

Thank you for your support,
