CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — For many veterans transitioning back into civilian life, the transition can be quite the challenge.

And that also includes finding a steady source of income.

That's why staff with Workforce Solutions of the Coastal Bend has partnered with the Corpus Christi Army Depot to help these veterans find a job.

The event began at 9 a.m. at Sunrise Career Center.

This is the first time the two have partnered with each other and both know that finding a job can be tough process.

The veteran applicants were advised to come with their resumes, proof of ID, and a DD-214 which shows that they served in the military.

We spoke to veteran Shawn Dagley.

He says lately he has been pursuing higher education.

Dagley also says that he is ready to go back into the workforce.

He was able to share his skills with potential employers and sees C-CAD as an opportunity for growth.

“It's a great arena,” Dagley said. “It’s always going to be there, and if you get on board with CCAD and you decide you want to go somewhere else, there are availabilities outside of CCAD, but you get that great experience here with all the helicopters.”

The depo says they are recruiting more than 200 positions with many skill sets.

And staff with Workforce Solutions of the Coastal Bend say they will have this same hiring event tomorrow at Sunrise from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. that will be open to everyone – not just veterans.
