FORT SILL, Okla._Military members and veterans who are looking for jobs can get a boost for a hiring event at Fort Sill later this month.

The event is designed to give all U.S. military veterans, transitioning service members, National Guard members, Army Reserve members and their spouses a chance to find and interview for jobs. Participating employers will have jobs that they are ready to fill and will be interviewing eligible applicants on the spot.

The project manager at Lawton’s Oklahoma Works says there will be several different types of jobs at the event.

"Industry jobs, depending upon the organizations that come there. In some cases, it could be my industry, transportation, logistics, administrative, in some instances we might even have fast food organizations and food industry.

While walk-ins are welcomed to the event, applicants who send their resume in early have a better chance of being matched with employers.
