Veterans will have a chance to get some solid job leads at several employment fairs being held around the state.  Illinois Department of Employment Security spokesperson Greg Rivara says veterans job fairs will be held at nine locations, and feature many businesses looking for workers.

Rivara says this is also a good opportunity for companies to hire well qualified workers and take advantage of a state veterans hiring tax credit.  The closest one to the Riverbend is at the Southwestern Illinois College Campus in Belleville on November 8 from 8:30am - Noon.  For a list of other locations, follow the link.
