Job seekers got the opportunity to network with employers face-to-face at the Veterans Career Expo in Perry on Thursday. 13WMAZ talked with one woman from Roberta who says finding a new career opportunity hasn't been easy.
Susan O'Neal says, "I lost my job in April. I'm a Georgia licensed optician. Been in that type of work for 37 years. "
O'Neal says in the past, people were coming to her with offers of employment. Now the tables have turned. She joined hundreds of others who were hoping to find an opportunity at the event.
