"Paycheck to Patriots" Job Fairs Held Statewide Thursday

Oct 24, 2012

MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (WMOT)  --  Tennessee is partnering with several of the state’s biggest employers to connect veterans with jobs.

The Paycheck to Patriots initiative will host job fairs in 13 locations all around the state Thursday. The Tennessee Career Center in Tullahoma will host the mid-state job fair beginning at 10 a.m. and continuing until 2 p.m.

Dollar General Vice President Bob Ravener is a Navy veteran, and says he knows from first-hand experience that vets bring a lot to the table.

“What employer wouldn’t want key attributes like team work and loyalty and reliability and integrity and a can-do attitude that makes any organization better.”

Dollar General will be joined at the job fair by representatives from Arnold Engineering Development Center, Kelly Services, Titan Transfer, and Yates Services.

Once again, the mid-state Paycheck for Patriots job fair takes place tomorrow at the state Career Center in Tullahoma from 10 a.m. till 2 p.m.
