A job fair for veterans is being held in the Tampa Bay area this week and is focusing on employing our nation’s military veterans and their families.

Today, Florida JobLink.com is hosting the first Tampa Bay Hiring Heroes career fair in Wesley Chapel. The job fair is open from 10 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at the Hampton Inn Wesley Chapel located at 2740 Cypress Ridge Boulevard.

Everyone is invited to the event, but organizers say they have an added focus on reaching and finding work for veterans and their spouses. Employers from around the Tampa Bay area will be in attendance to hire people on the spot for dozens of open jobs.

Some job opportunities available include first responder jobs, heavy equipment operators, security officers, educators and customer service professionals.
