A unique event is taking place Thursday for veterans in metro Atlanta. Employment Seekers is partnering with dozens of businesses hosted a job fair for veterans.

The job fair lasted from 10 a.m. until 1 p.m. at the Cobb Galleria located at 2 Galleria Parkway SE.

Veterans who attended were able to take MARTA  to Galleria Parkway.

The Atlanta and Marietta VA Centers along with the American Legion in Marietta also offered free rides from their buildings.

Renee Jackson, Employment Seeker Director of Human Resources, says the event is geared to help veterans and their families.

"Once the transition and they try to come back into the work force, it's a little difficult for them to transition from military to the workforce. So we're here to help them to get their lives back on track."

The career fair is also open to spouses of military veterans.
