ATLANTA -- Nearly 700 military veterans and their spouses turned out for a job fair at the Georgia Dome Thursday.
The Hiring Our Heroes/Recruit Military Veteran Expo runs until 3pm. More than 50 local and national companies are represented, with many of them taking resumes and conducting interviews on-site. At least one company hired five people on the spot.
"Every company here is specifically here because they want to hire and they want to bring on veterans," said Robert Walker, events director for Recruit Military, which organized the event.
The fair is only open to military veterans and their spouses. It is free and no registration is required.
