Mayor Annise Parker helped kick off Disability Awareness Month with a job fair.
The City of Houston, Workforce Solutions and the Veterans Administration sponsored the fourth annual event. Dozens of employers turned out and TXU Energy even had interviews on the spot.
Organizers also added a new angle to this year's job fair.
"We're supporting veterans who are returning from Iraq and Afghanistan and other places, especially for wounded veterans who are looking to get back into the workforce," said Nicholas Cavallaro with Houston-Area Community Services.
