"Welcome Home, Hickory Metro" is a local public-private partnership formed to proactively recruit skilled veterans and their families transitioning out of North Carolina's military installations and match them with great jobs at Catawba County companies - offering veterans a new Purpose. Mission. Team.

Since the Hickory Metro community is our best recruitment asset, we will be hosting interested veterans and families for a weekend, planned for Friday, Sept. 15 – Sunday, Sept. 17. 

The weekend will be a blend of pre-matched job interviews with local companies and a series of community tours and fun excursions that highlight Catawba County’s ideal quality of life for veterans/families - including everything from the local school systems, to available healthcare and even groups veterans can plug into from Day 1.

We appreciate your interest in this weekend and hope you and your family feel at home, here in the Hickory Metro.  Click here for more info, to register, or to sponsor.
