Job fair honors our nation’s heroes

BRIDGEPORT--One job fair on Tuesday wasn't your typical fare, the applicants have already given so much of themselves, but attended to give a bit more.

At the “Heroes 4 Hire” job fair - the only requirement to apply is that you are a veteran.

Like Army veteran Harold Person. "I’m looking for a job in the field of which I was trained in the military."

According to James Lauber, of the Department of Labor, “We do these events because we know they’re qualified from their military specialties for the jobs back home."

The Heroes 4 Hire job fair is not new to the state – in fact for 12 years they’ve been running them up in Hartford – but this is the first time they’ve made the move down to the shoreline.
