Service members, families take place in hiring event

FORT SILL, Ok (RNN Texoma) - Several people were connected with future careers Thursday at a hiring event at Fort Sill.


This is the sixth year for the Military Connection hiring event that is put on by the Oklahoma Office of Workforce and Development. It gave active duty services members, veterans and their families an opportunity to connect to different employers across the state.

"We've got another great batch of employers here, and a lot of job seekers have come through today. Our goal is to get as many of those job seekers employment offers as possible," David Crow, outreach and information officer for the Oklahoma Office of Workforce and Development. Crow says he hopes the hiring event can show people there are opportunities for veterans in the area. He says there were probably well over 100 people at the event today.
