More than 100 job seekers turned out for the fall veterans job and resource fair held Thursday morning at the Bossier Civic Center.

Jason Schofield will retire next month after a 20-year career in the U.S. Air Force. Recently, he sent out 20 resumes and filled out as many applications in anticipation of his next chapter in life.

He appreciates a job fair geared toward the military, but he says there are many more companies seeking workers who were not at this job fair.
