Recruit Military is a veteran owned organization bringing a veteran job fair to our area Thursday.
John Lundberg, director of events says the job fair was created specifically with veterans in mind.
"This is for anybody who ever served in any capacity, at any time."
More than 300 veterans are expected to attend and Lundberg says its not just for veterans recently returning from Afghanistan or Iraq. He says the job fair is also open to family members of veterans. He says, "They had to sacrifice just as much as the serving veteran did."
As for jobs, Lundberg says they will be filling for all types of positions, adminstrative, logistics, warehousing, technical, IT, and security to name a few. He says on average more than 100 veterans will walk away from the job fair with a job offer.
"For most people, they'll probably walk away with at least the opportunity for an interview."
The job fair will be held at Everbank Field on Thursday, June 13th from 11am to 3pm.
