CHICAGO (WLS) -- Hire a Veteran day is coming up on Monday.
So how can the men and women who serve this country prepare?
Christian Canas, Army veteran and director of operations at the LaSalle Network, joined ABC7 Chicago Wednesday to talk more about it.
He said it can be a little difficult for veterans to get that first job after service, but, with the right preparation, it will go well.
Also, because of the strong job market, it might be even easier. Companies are looking to diversify their work force, Canas said
It's important for veterans to translate their skills into a civilian role, he added.
