Application closed on 7/24/2022. We will reach out to selected veterans in a few weeks. Thank you to all who applied.

The Des Plaines Chamber of Commerce & Industry is proud to announce its 5th Annual Veterans Back-to-Work Boot Camp is returning in September 2022 in our new HYBRID format! The selected veterans will receive the tools they need to transition into the civilian job force.

We are searching for recent military veterans who have been honorably discharged to apply for this trans-formative opportunity. The Chamber, along with several human resource representatives and Veteran Business leaders from area companies will select 20 Veterans in August. Upon completion, each participant will receive a career-enhancing gift  package valued at more than $8,000.00 (see list below). The remaining applications will be shared with the committee for hiring consideration and will be invited to a future Career Fair.
