Vets seek jobs at Wiregrass career fair


Wiregrass Technical College in Valdosta is helping veterans find jobs.

Wednesday the school hosted its second annual Veterans Career Fair with more than 40 vendors.

Vets from all over south Georgia came out to meet with employers, college representatives, and veterans organizations, in hopes of finding work or going back to school.

"A lot of them are having a tough time finding jobs similar to what they were doing in the military or even different types of jobs in the local area. A lot of them have to go back to school to reinvent themselves," said Tim Oliver with Valdosta Veterans First.

Airmen from Moody volunteered at the job fair. Organizers hope to bring the event back every year to help out local vets.
