Hundreds of military veterans from across the Triangle region and beyond packed a special job fair Thursday in Raleigh.
This job fair at Carter-Finley Stadium was for veterans like Jimmy Hicks of Cameron, near Ft. Bragg.
“Usually I get at least one or two calls back when I attend a job fair," said Hicks. “Hey, if you get one, I think that’s a good thing."
Hicks retired from the Army in 2000. He's looking for a career in telecommunications. His job with Verizon was outsourced some years ago.
