Cincinnati, OH (PR Log) July 26, 2010 RecruitMilitary, a military-to-civilian recruiting firm, will present a free civilian employment, entrepreneurship, and education Opportunity Expo for job seekers who have military backgrounds at Great American Ball Park, home of the Cincinnati Reds, on Thursday, August 26. RecruitMilitary and the Expo sponsor, the Xavier University Veterans Affairs Office, are inviting veterans who already have civilian work experience, men and women who are transitioning from active duty to civilian life, members of the National Guard and reserves, military spouses, and other military family members.
The company expects more than 30 employers, franchisors, and educational institutions to reserve exhibitor booths at the Expo. Already signed up are Beckfield College, Brown Mackie Colleges, Cincom Systems, Inc., Coca-Cola, Dayton VA Medical Center, DeVry University, the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), MAG, Mass Mutual Financial Group, Mike’s Express Car Wash, National College, Northern Kentucky University, Northrop Grumman, the Ohio Army National Guard, Prudential Insurance Company, Schlumberger, Schwan’s Food Manufacturing, Inc., ServiceMaster Clean, Snap-On Tools, Speedway SuperAmerica, LLC, The Art Institutes, The Dwyer Group, U.S. Lawns, the University of Cincinnati, Verizon Wireless, the Veterans Administration – Cincinnati, and Xavier University.
Xavier University created its Veterans Affairs Office in November 2009 to attract and support the growing number of veterans returning to college. That number is growing rapidly as a result of the Post-9/11 GI Bill, which became effective on Aug. 1, 2009. The bill provides financial support for education and housing to individuals with at least 90 days of aggregate service on or after Sept. 11, 2001, or individuals honorably discharged with a service-connected disability after 30 days. The office is led by David Kezsei, a retired Major in the Marine Corps.
RecruitMilitary (www2.recruitmilitary.com) will produce the Expo in cooperation with The American Legion and the Military Spouse Corporate Career Network (MSCCN).
