Veterans and their spouses lined up to talk to a variety of employers including technology and research companies.

One veteran WAAY 31 talked to was at the event to help guide veterans through the process of transitioning into a civilian job.

"I made a lot of mistakes like many others do. As I grew into the working and commercial community environment, I realized it was important that I share some of the knowledge I received through the school of hard knocks, so I might helps others. I don't want them to make some of the mistakes that I made throughout the years" Lt. Colonel Jay Hicks one of the veterans at the event.

Veterans also took part in workshops such as strategies and insight into how to land a job, resume writing, interview techniques and presentation skills.
