Dozens of companies took part in a veterans job fair today, but as it turns out, barely any were willing to hire people on the spot.

And many of the available positions aren't based in Hampton Roads.

The event was held at Nauticus today.

NewsChannel 3 found out of the 53 companies taking part, only two were willing to hire on the spot.

Another company at the fair had about seven positions open, but they were all in the northwest part of the state.

All the other companies told people to apply online.
