CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (WVIR) - Some Charlottesville-area veterans are getting offers for better jobs.

The Veteran and Community Job Fair saw high attendance at the Carver Recreation Center Wednesday, September 12. The fair had more than 55 employers hiring anywhere from entry-level to upper-management positions.

Charlottesville Chief of Workforce Development Strategy Hollie Lee said the job fair is one way to help honor veterans.

“It's a great way for us to support veterans in the community. The fact that they served our country, any way that we can help them move up in life achieve whatever goals they have we want to do that,” Lee said.

She said the opportunity to get in physically in front of employers can help cinch the job.

Veterans and civilians alike were able to take advantage of the fair.
