(WHAS11) -- Are you looking for a job?

Kentucky Congressman John Yarmuth is hosting his Annual Jobs and Resources Fair

More than 50 local employers are looking to hire.

The event is free and open to all residents of the third congressional district.

It will connect the unemployed, underemployed, those who are looking to change careers and opportunities for veterans and active military.

 It’s taking place from 4 to 7 p.m. at Louisville Slugger Field.
TARC will be free and available to those who need a ride.

Special attention is paid to veterans and military personnel looking for a job.

The unemployment rate for those considered Gulf War-era veterans is about nine percent nationwide. That's nearly two points higher than the civilian population.

In Kentucky, about seven percent of all veterans are unemployed.
