CRESTVIEW — Military veterans and job seekers can attend the North Okaloosa Veterans Career Expo on Wednesday, July 24 at the Crestview Community Center.

"This is the single largest hiring event in north Okaloosa County," event organizer Liz Westby said in an email. "With the wide variety of employers who will be attending, there should be opportunities for all job seekers.  

The expo will allow veterans to meet more than 25 employers in addition to representatives from veteran assistance agencies.

"Veterans will be able to speak with (Veterans Affairs) representatives to help determine their benefits and how to access them," Westby said.

Westby is assisting in organizing the event on behalf of JobsPlus, where she serves as a veteran services representative for Okaloosa and Walton counties. 

The event’s main draw will be numerous employers looking to hire active or retired veterans, their military families or civilians.

"Many types of industry will be represented, including government contractors, retail,  food services, hospitality, construction and law enforcement," Westby said.
