A job fair is being held Tuesday morning in DeKalb County, but it's not for your average applicant.
This event is catered towards members of the military and their families.
"Our hope is we can assist the service members and what they've done in the military," says Ernie Lombardi, with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. "Service members often have a difficult time trying to translate what they've accomplished into civilian jobs."
The fair, one of many being held around the country by the chamber, is expected to draw a full house of both applicants and potential employers.
"We average between 200 and 300 job seekers, per event," Lombardi tells WSB. "We have over 50 and close to 60 employer companies represented."
In addition to the job fair, veterans will be able to attend classes on how to write a better resume, how to interview for a job, and how to explain to a potential hirer how what they did in the military makes them a good candidate for a job.
"We're trying to show them how to explain what they've done in their military career and it best translates into a language that a civilian employer can understand," says Lombardi.
The job fair runs from 10 a.m. until 1 p.m. at the DeKalb Learning Center, at 2600 Century Parkway. Workshops will get underway at 9 a.m.
