Job fair for veterans planned


A veteran's job and resource fair is planned for Thursday, October 6, 4 to 7 p.m.  It's being held at the Iowa National Guard Armory Complex, 4540 Melrose Avenue, in Iowa City.  The event is open to the public and will provide opportunities for all job seekers to meet with employers as well as veterans to speak with local service and resource providers.

"We hear that businesses are looking for candidates with leadership qualities and real world experiences.  Veterans provide both," said Brenda Dodge, operations director of the IowaWORKS Center in Iowa City.  "This event is a great opportunity to find talented people."   

In addition to information on local employment opportunities, veterans will also have access to a variety of service providers that may assist with access to health care, counseling, training benefits, assistance with service-connected disability claims and more.
