Hundreds of veterans gathered at the War Memorial along Lake Michigan last week for a job fair geared specifically to them.

More than 70 employers were on hand, some offering interviews and hiring on the spot.

The fair was presented in partnership with the Milwaukee County Veterans Service Office, the Zablocki VA Medical Center and the Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development.

It was the tenth job fair of its kind.

The County hosts job fairs like these twice a year, both in October and March.
