Military members, veterans attend job fair

Posted: Updated:

Many who've served in the U.S. Armed Forces are now looking to start a new chapter in their lives.

Hundreds of veterans turned out for a job fair at Georgia Southern University. Companies in a variety of fields came to meet current or former military members who're looking for new careers.

U.S. Rep. John Barrow hosts the job fair and hopes it opens doors for the veterans.

"From the employee perspective, a job fair can get you access to more opportunities. Just like you go to a health fair because you think there's something you need to check, you come to a job fair for one thing and find out about several other things," Barrow said. 

Some of the companies included Gulfstream Aerospace Corp., Coca-Cola Co., Georgia Ports Authority and others.
