JACKSONVILLE, N.C. (AP) — Wounded Marines are getting help preparing for a job fair that’s being held at the USO in Jacksonville.

The Daily News of Jacksonville reported Marines from Wounded Warrior Battalion East at Camp Lejeune recently attended a workshop hosted by HireHeroesUSA. It’s a nonprofit organization that aims to create job opportunities for U.S. military veterans and their spouses.

The Marines were trained in resume writing and translating military experience to terms civilian employers can understand. They also participated in mock interviews.

The Career Opportunity Day will be held Wednesday. It’s limited to 75 transitioning service members and their spouses. Fifteen employers with job openings will attend.
