The 100,000 Jobs Mission hiring event is scheduled for 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on July 12, 2012 at the University of Illinois at Chicago's UIC Forum, 725 West Roosevelt Road. Veterans and others seeking work are encouraged to pre-register. Since the program's launch last year, the group has collectively hired more than 12,000 veterans.
