Nebraska officials are hoping to help Nebraska veterans and their spouses find jobs through two upcoming Hiring Our Heroes job fairs.


The first fair will be held February 19 at the DC Centre in Omaha. The second will be held April 1 at the Lancaster Event Center in Lincoln.


Major General Daryl Bohac of the Nebraska National Guard says veterans have skills that employers desire, such as leadership and the ability to work under pressure.


Cathy Lang, Commissioner of the Nebraska Department of Labor, says the department can help with resume writing and help veterans look for jobs with their skill set.


The ten previous fairs throughout the state have served about 1,300 veterans and 300 employers.
