The Des Plaines, Illinois Chamber of Commerce & Industry’s (www.dpchamber.com) “Veterans Back-to-Work Boot Camp”, brought to you by Rivers Casino, is returning for a 7th year in a row this Fall. They are searching for recent military veterans and/or any veterans in transition, who have been honorably discharged, and NEW this year they are accepting applications from SPOUSES of ACTIVE-DUTY MILITARY MEMBERS to apply to be selected for this transformative opportunity.

Upon completion of the program, each participant will receive a career-enhancing professional development package valued at more than $10,000.00. The remaining VETERAN/MILITARY SPOUSE applications will be shared with our HR committee for hiring consideration and will be invited to our Des Plaines Chamber “Fall into a New Career” Career Fair on Wednesday, November 1, 2023.

Since the program started in 2017, they have had over (140) Veterans graduate, and many of them have gone on to find meaningful careers in our area.

The 2023 selected participants will receive the tools they need to transition into the workforce to find the job of their dreams.
