“It’s just a great opportunity for veterans to come out and actually meet company representatives (who) are intrigued by veterans and really want to hire (them),” said Kelley Koons, a veterans service specialist at the Military Veterans Resource Center in Dayton.

“We keep seeing added interest in the employer community,” she said.

The career fair is open to veterans, and active duty, National Guard and reserve service members and spouses and dependents, according to Koons.

Job seekers should bring a resume and be prepared to speak with potential employers, organizers said. Professionals will offer advice on resumes and interview skills, MVRC said.
