Illinois officials are pushing to find jobs for military veterans with a job fair.
Gov. Pat Quinn and other officials showed up at a job fair in Chicago on Thursday, three days after Quinn signed a bill that doubles the state's income tax credits to companies that hire veterans.
The job fair at the University of Illinois is part of what's called the 100,000 Jobs Mission -- an effort to hire 100,000 veterans in Illinois in the next eight years.
Hundreds of veterans showed up to talk to about 60 companies that set up booths. Many of them interviewed, and officials say a handful were offered jobs on the spot.
Several veterans who showed up with resumes or to ask questions say they appreciate the job fair.
