Job Fair for veterans planned in Omaha|
This year's last Nebraska job fair aimed at veterans and military spouses will be held in Omaha. The Hiring Our Heroes event is set for today at the DC Centre from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Ninety employers with a variety of job openings have registered. The event is a joint effort among the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, the Nebraska Department of Labor and the Nebraska National Guard. Cathy Lang, who heads the state's labor and economic development departments, says the chamber is not scheduling new fairs in Nebraska this year. She says the chamber is now planning to launch a database that will help connect veterans to jobs throughout the country. Gov. Dave Heineman announced the fair to call attention to the job openings.
