A job fair Tuesday will kick off Maine’s annual Hire-A-Vet campaign.
Auta Main, veterans program manager at the Maine Department of Labor, says veterans bring a very desirable skill set to any job.
“Even at a young age they become leaders, they’re often supervising 30 or 40 people when they’re 20 years old. They come with leadership skills, teamwork. They’re prompt, they show up on time, they’re disciplined. They love mission and purpose,” she says.
