Military job fair brings nearly 50 employers to Fort Gordon

Military job fair brings nearly 50 employers to Fort Gordon

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation hosted a Hiring Our Heroes job fair for military at Fort Gordon on Thursday.

The job fair was also for transitioning service members, guard reserves and veterans.

The goal is to help improve the lives of military families by offering them an opportunity to get out of unemployment and underemployment.

"We're right at 50 employers today right here at Fort Gordon," said Ernie Lombardi with the U.S. Chamber. "Another half dozen organizations like the VA, like local vet centers and things along those lines are also here. The premise is to put these veterans, active duty men and women, former military, in front of these employers to have conversations about job opportunities."

If you are a veteran and missed this job fair, there are still opportunities to meet with employers.
