Fort Gordon, GA -
More than 150 veterans and family members had the chance to be hired on the spot Thursday.
The annual Hiring Our Heroes event was held at Fort Gordon's U.S. Army Reserve Center.
More than 50 different organizations from across the CSRA were on site.
The event allows the military and their spouses an opportunity for on-one-one time with employers, as they transition back into civilian life.
"Many of these me and women have spent 8, 10, 20, 30 years of their life being in the uniform every day. Now, to move into a sector where they're wearing a coat and a tie, and change their language and a little bit of their lifestyle, it's a daunting task," said Ernie Lombardi, with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation.
If you weren't able to make it Thursday, job-seeking resources are always available on their website.
