The Wyoming Department of Workforce Service's Cheyenne Workforce Center hosted its "Hiring Our Heroes" job fair at Storey Gym.
Veterans from all over the tri-state region were there in hopes of showing at least one employer they're the one for the job.
There were lots of resumes exchanged and handshakes given in Storey Gym on Friday.
"A lot of competition. There's a lot of people with a lot of skills," said Dan Jagoditsh.
Dan Jagoditsh served all 20 of his years of service in Cheyenne at F.E. Warren Air Force Base.
He came to the job fair hoping to find a job with good benefits that fit his skills.
"Seen a couple places so far that are providing that and both companies seem pretty interested in me so I'm pretty happy about that," Jagoditsh said.
Veterans have many appealing qualities as an employee. 51 employers attended Friday's job fair looking to bring veterans into their workforce.
One of those employers was the Laramie County Sheriff's Department. They think veterans are very well suited for their line of work.
"We've found that this is really a great venue in hiring, not only veterans, but people that are concerned with their community. Solid backgrounds and experience. The types of things I think most law enforcement agencies are looking for," said Gerry Luce.
Unfortunately many of Cheyenne's homeless population are also veterans, but it's job fair's like these that can get them back into the workforce with the help of people like Cynthia Williams at the Cheyenne VA.
"I came here today to gather information to help for future employment for the vets that are coming in as that is the next step for them to return back to a normal life after their journey," Williams said.
With a wide variety of employers to talk to, Williams is confident they'll be able to get some of these homeless vets back into the workforce.
"The resources that are available to me now and the collection of data and with the vets I'm sure there's more vets that we're going to be able to help now because we have more information at our disposal," Williams said.
As veteran employment representative Jerry Davis said, "If we can find one veteran a job, then it was a success."
