ST. LOUIS (KMOV.com) -- According to Forbes, St. Louis is the fifth best place for veterans to live. One thing helping the city maintain that ranking may be the use of job fairs held for the veterans in the area.
Veterans and their families were welcomed to Chaifetz Arena Wednesday for a job fair where 30 companies were hiring for a variety of positions. Some employers included Edward Jones, Twin Lake Trucking and Boeing.
More than 600 people were registered for Wednesday's event.
"These employers come here specifically to hire veterans and spouses of veterans," says Doug Turner, a military recruiter. "It's positive in the effect that they're not here just to be he, they are looking to actively hire veterans."
