Veteran looking for employment
« on: December 27, 2015, 10:02:56 am »

Ever since I returned home from Afghanistan like October. I've had the hardest time getting a job. The one job I found I was laid off a month later and had to resort to drawing unemployment. I now moved back to Fort Smith where I am originally from but still haven't been able to find a stable decent job. I've got years of experience in Customer Service and also a little construction work from being in the military. I've always been a hard worker just looking for the opportunity to work for a great employer. At this rate I really just wish I was back overseas. At least I was making great money to support my family. If you know anything please help me out.

Either be prepared to commute or move, if necessary. The job market in the vicinity of Fort Smith is on an ebb cycle. My dad is a carpenter and has had to take jobs as far as Talihina, OK, to keep work coming in.

Look to NWA for customer service jobs, I would think.

We should encourage employers in the NWA area to host a 1 day Veterans Job Fair.  I don't know how to go about getting something like this started but I sure would be willing to do so.
