Yarmuth hosting jobs fair in Louisville

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Military veterans looking for work will have a chance to meet with dozens of businesses at a jobs fair in Louisville.

The event being hosted by U.S. Rep. John Yarmuth is set for 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. EST Tuesday at Louisville Slugger Field.

More than 50 local businesses in need of employees will be represented at the fair.

Active-duty military members and people living in the 3rd Congressional District also are invited to attend.

The Small Business Administration will hold free workshops for veterans who are looking to become entrepreneurs. Officials from the Veterans Administration and VA Medical Center will be on hand to assist veterans in applying for health, disability and education benefits.

At last year's jobs fair, local employers scheduled more than 300 interviews with veterans they met at the event.
