Job Fair For Troops And Their Spouses Coming To Ft. Bliss

If you are active duty military, reserves or the spouse of an active duty service member, check this out.

Many active duty service men and women take on side jobs out of neccesity or to prepare for the end of their service career.  Even more military spouses look for work but, for both, it can be difficult.

Not being familiar with the area is often a problem since military are always moving around and some employers don’t like hiring folks that haven’t been in the area long. It seems unfair that troops … who are risking (or will risk) their lives for all of us … need second jobs in the first place but, sadly, many can’t make it on their pay alone.  So help is on the way!
