BRISTOL – With more than 100 job openings, ESPN of Bristol is seeking the best and brightest candidates to fill them. That’s why the company participated in last month’s Heroes 4 Hire job and career fair, which brought together potential employers and 1,200 job-seekers who have served their country as a member of the U.S. Armed Forces. ESPN Bristol was one of 85 exhibitors attending the event, which was sponsored by the state’s Department of Labor, the state and federal Departments of Veterans Affairs, Travelers, CBS Radio and local chambers of commerce. ESPN’s Diane Larivee lauded the event as an opportunity to meet and possibly hire qualified job candidates. Similarly, Courtney Wengenroth, a human resources specialist at Yarde Metals in Bristol, attended the event “looking for veterans to fill a good number of our openings because they bring great skills to our workplace,” according to a DOL release. The release also quotes state Labor Commissioner Sharon Palmer. “It’s very rewarding when there are so many employers eager to hire our veterans,” Palmer states. “The Heroes 4 Hire Career Fair is always a special event because it reflects Connecticut’s ongoing commitment to return the favor, even in a small way, to the men and women who represented this country in the military.” Employers interested in exhibiting at or finding out more about the next Heroes 4 Hire Career Fair should e-mail This email address is being protected from spambots.
