EUGENE, Ore. - St. Vincent DePaul’s Veterans in Progress program held it's annual Veteran's Job Fair on Thursday.
The event is open to military veterans and typically features dozens of local employers.
Those employers, which include the Oregon Department of Human Services, the Eugene Water & Electric Board, Glory Bee, and much more, accepted applications and conduct on-site interviews.
One EWEB representative said he is a veteran who found his job with the utility company two years ago.
"I met people that were already at the company that were veterans," said Eddie Lopez, EWEB Project Manager. "I was also made aware of opening almost as soon as they were posted and the flow of information was so free at the time."
Organizers said Thursday's event had a low turn out due to weather, but expect to hold a second job fair sometime in the spring.
