Milwaukee County Veterans Job Fair proves to be a success




One of the largest job fairs in the state for military veterans took place right here in Milwaukee. On Thursday, March 10th, there was some encouraging news for veterans looking for a job.

James Cox, a Vietnam veteran, has a part-time position driving a school bus. “I like kids. I like giving back. I like mentoring,” said Cox. Stephanie Wardin, an active duty Army National Guard member, was looking for a career change.

“I am an EMT, so I achieved that through the military. I would like to do something medical related,” said Wardin.

More than 70 employers filled Milwaukee’s War Memorial on Thursday, looking to hire local veterans.

“A veteran gets done with his job, and he goes and looks for someone else to help. The non-veteran goes to get a cup of coffee or goes to read the paper,” said Greg Williams, Job Fair Planning Committee member.

“In the military, you always have to show up early. You have to be 10 minutes early before the 10 minutes early,” said Wardin.
