Job fair for veterans held in Houston

The job fair was sponsored by the National Initiative at the American Legion post in Pasadena

PASADENA - A Hiring Our Heroes job fair was held Wednesday for our American veterans.

The National Initiative sponsored the fair at the American Legion post in Pasadena.

Texas business representatives spoke with veterans and their spouses.

They set up tables and posted now hiring sings to encourage conversation.

"We find it's very important to integrate veterans into the job market because they do have a lot of skills that are valuable in the job market. It's just that some of those skills get lost in translation," said Kierion Dawkins.

The job fair ended at 1 p.m., but there are still plenty of opportunities for veterans to find jobs.
