hiring-our-heroes(AP) — State officials are hoping to help Nebraska veterans and their spouses find jobs through two upcoming Hiring Our Heroes job fairs.

The fair will be held Feb. 19 at the DC Centre in Omaha. A fair will also be held April 1 at the Lancaster Event Center.

Maj. Gen. Daryl Bohac of the Nebraska National Guard says veterans have skills that employers desire, such as leadership and the ability to work under pressure.

Cathy Lang, Commissioner of the Nebraska Department of Labor, says the department can help with resume writing and help veterans look for jobs with their skill set.

The ten previous fairs throughout the state have served about 1,300 veterans and 300 employers.
