The Hiring Our Heroes job fair is coming back to Knoxville for the second year in a row. The job fair helps military veterans get civilian jobs.

The Knoxville Chamber of Commerce works with the U.S. Chamber to get veterans interviews and teach them job-hunting skills.

"Also training these military members that are getting out on how to word the language of the skills they've learned in the military and how that pertains to a civilian job. That's a big problem we've been having with these people coming out of the military is they don't know how to communicate what great skills they have to a civilian company," said Patrice Collins.

The job fair is October 1 at the Grande Event Center on Clinton Highway. Employers need to register to be a part of it.
