“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, twice a year we host interested veterans and their families for our “Welcome Home, Hickory Metro” weekends.
These WHHM weekends are 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.
