On Wednesday, the Technology Association of Georgia hosted a veteran job fair at Armstrong Atlantic State University. They say companies from all over the state were invited to come meet with the veterans. TAG says giving veterans jobs isn't only helping those who served our country but it also benefits the companies that hire them.
"Veterans are hard working, highly motivated individuals who know a lot about team. They are able to buy into a concept bigger than themselves. Those are the exact kind of employees you want to have," said Brady Cannon, TAG representative.
TAG says the unemployment rate among veterans in Georgia is higher than both the state and national rate.
