BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota is looking to veterans to help fill the more than 25,000 available jobs in the state.

The state hopes veterans can fill at least 10,000 of these available jobs.

The drive to recruit veterans is part of the state’s Find the Good Life campaign to bring additional workers to North Dakota. The campaign has sent representatives to job fairs in Fort Hood in Texas and Fort Sill in Oklahoma.

North Dakota Economic Foundation chairman Wally Goulet says veterans bring exceptional skills and work ethic to the civilian job market.

The state’s oil boom in recent years has significantly expanded the state’s economy. North Dakota has added 100,000 jobs since December 2007.
