STATELINE (WIFR) -- Dozens of businesses are reaching out to Stateline veterans looking for work.
A job fair was held at the VFW post in Loves Park. Veterans met with recruiters from employers like Coca-Cola, Mercy Health System, and UTC Aerospace. We talked to one organizer who says he’s impressed with the number of employers willing to help out.
“These employers that are here today have stepped up for veterans of our community looking or work. They’re supporting the veterans who have returned from deployment recently,” said Commander Adam Abdul for the VFW in Loves Park.
The Workforce Connection and the VFW sponsored the event.
