Career fair for military veterans

Posted: Updated:

PHOENIX -- The folks who served our country are getting some much-needed help with employment.

The University of Phoenix Stadium is playing host to a job fair for veterans. RecruitMilitary is the name and the focus of the job fair.

About 300 veterans and their spouses will attend the career expo. The premise of the event is to allow veterans advancement in their careers or start to focus on other opportunities.

They will have the chance to meet face to face with dozens of local, regional and national employers as well as some educational opportunities, which they can benefit by using the updated GI Bill.

According to the organizers, the last expo they held in the Valley was a success, especially for those who are just transitioning from the military to civilian life.

The job fair lasts through 3 p.m. Thursday.

Bring your résumés and some proof of being in the military.
