Veterans looking for work will want to mark their calendars for another special job fair coming up next week in Cornelia.

A number of employers will be recruiting to fill job openings at the Northeast Georgia Veterans Career Expo in Habersham County on December 7.

The expo will be co-sponsored by the Georgia Department of Labor and the Veterans of Foreign Wars.

The event, which is open to all job seekers, will be held from 10a to 2p at VFW Post 7720 located at 423 VFW Road in Cornelia.

Staff from the Georgia Department of Labor will be available to assist the veterans and other job seekers.
