Fort Polk Job Fair

Posted: Updated:

FORT POLK, La. (KALB News Channel 5) The Fort Polk Army Career and Alumni Program held a job fair this morning.

It's an event geared toward transitioning soldiers and veterans.

The job fair is designed to help service men and women network with local businesses to develop employment opportunities for when they leave the service.

Organizers say this is an important step for transitioning military.

"By them participating in our program they learn to be marketable in the civilian workforce and then they can market their skills that they have learned in the military. Over to our civilian employers and understand everything that they have to bring to the table and so I think is a great deal for the employers and it is a great deal for our transitioners," said Tami Culbreath.

more than 20 businesses from across the area were on hand today for this month's fort polk job fair.
