Opportunity is knocking for veterans in need of employment in the Fort Hood, Texas area. RecruitMilitary is hosting a job fair Wednesday, December 1st, from 11am to 3pm at the Killeen Civic and Conference Center, 3601 South W.S. Young Drive, in Ballroom C.
What is a RecruitMilitary Job Fair? It's an event that gives job seekers with military experience the opportunity to meet with recruiters from local and national companies.
It's free for U.S veterans, military spouses, transitioning military, and members of the Guard and Reserve. With 66 registered exhibitors, there are a lot of employment choices. More businesses may be added the day of the event.
Samsung Electronics is one of many businesses looking for employees. Last week, KWTX reported that Samsung Electronics is building a new semiconductor manufacturing facility in Taylor. According to Texas Gov. Greg Abbott, the facility will create over 2,000 tech jobs, thousands of indirect jobs, and a minimum of 6,500 construction jobs.
Other exhibitors include the City of Killeen, Central Intelligence Agency, Texas Department of Transportation, United States Secret Service, and Wells Fargo.
You can register for the job fair, upload your resume, and get information about available positions at RecruitMilitary.com.

Top 20 Restaurants Central Texans Wish Would Come to Temple
A while back, I asked the good people of Temple
if they could picture a good restaurant to fill the lot on North General Bruce Drive where the soon to be torn down Long John Silver's stood.
This was before it was announced that a Dutch Bros. Coffee location would open there (which was one of the places I predicted as a contender in our article).
So now Dutch Bros. is open in that spot, but the responses to my survey were interesting because they paint a picture of just how diverse Temple's population is. People recommended some familiar restaurants with locations in the surrounding area, but also a few I'd never even heard of.
Here are the top 20 results of the survey. Let's see what the good people of Temple are craving!
