Paychecks for Patriots job fair set for next week

Posted: Updated:

Members of the military and veterans have an opportunity to meet face-to-face with potential employers in the Chattachoochee Valley.

The Georgia Department of Labor's Paychecks for Patriots career expo will be held Thursday, October 17 at Columbus State University's Cunningham Center from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m.

It's estimated as many as 80,000 veterans will return home to Georgia over the next four years. It's often tough to make the transition from soldier to civilian. 

"We, at the Georgia Department of Labor, understand the sacrifices these service men and women have made to keep us safe, and can think of no better way to thank them for their service than by helping them find their place in the workforce when they return home," said Commissioner Butler. "We owe it to them to do everything we can to assist them. We're committed to giving them the highest level of dedication."
