Hiring Our Heroes holds job fair for veterans, military spouses

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Veterans and military spouses had a chance to talk with more than 80 employers who are hiring at a job fair Thursday for Hiring Our Heroes at the University of Phoenix on Linn Station Road.

Companies range from big employers to small local businesses.

Medal of Honor recipient Sgt. Dakota Meyer was at the job fair to encourage veterans in their job search.

"They're coming out they're successful in the military you know providing for their families they get out and they can't find a job and to be honest with you it's just a miscommunication between corporations who don't understand - into corporations," said Sgt Meyer.

Meyer helped Hiring Our Heroes create a resume tool that translates military skills so service members can better market themselves.
