Pam Mason is a single mother of two and a retired Army soldier and even though she cherishes her 15 years serving she says finding employment has been a fight. "I have been job seeking now for the last year and so hopefully this job fair will pay off for me, explained Pam Mason. Mason is not alone. About 850 military veterans and their spouses stopped by the Bossier Civic Center, hoping to get a lead on a stable job. "It`s not too easy to find a job, that is why they are doing this right here to help us out," said Brian Jones, Navy Veteran. "Even though there are a lot of jobs out there to find but to just land one, it`s really difficult and with me I have been really trying these past years," commented Kharis Anderson. Businesses do recognize the potential and expertise the veterans possess. "We know there are a lot of qualified candidates out there looking for work with a vast background and can definitely help out company," admitted Jerry Lutterman, Director of Human Resources at Cellxion "I got a lot of positive feedback," said Jones. For Mason, she also wants the job fair to be a bigger life lesson. "Hoping it`s a positive goal for male and females and it`s about time someone thinks the females are on top as well."
