DAV RecruitMilitary Vet Job Fair Coming to Houston on December 3

Houston, TX (PR Log) November 2, 2015 - DAV and RecruitMilitary will produce an All Veterans Career Fair at Minute Maid Park on Thursday, December 3, 2015. The event will run from 11 a.m. until 3 p.m. In addition, USAA’s local wealth management team is presenting a seminar for veterans at 10:00 a.m., entitled "Five Steps to Informed Financial Transition.”

“RecruitMilitary job fairs maintain a track record of helping veterans find meaningful employment,” said President and CEO Peter Gudmundsson, a former Captain in the Marine Corps. “Just last year, 55% of veteran job seekers expected to secure an interview as a result of their participation in a RecruitMilitary job fair, and employers were expected to extend as many as 29,000 interviews and more than 9,000 job offers.”

In September, the DAV-RecruitMilitary Houston event connected more than 500 veteran job seekers with more than 70 exhibitors, including The Home Depot, First Data Corporation, and Apple, Inc. Participating companies expected to conduct up to 592 interviews and offer up to 247 jobs as a result of that career fair.

RecruitMilitary has produced veteran job fairs since 2006, and has held 29 events in Houston, drawing more than 13,700 attendees and more than 1,600 exhibitors. By the end of 2015, the company will have produced over 814 events in 65 cities across the country. RecruitMilitary plans to return to Houston to host four more events in 2016.

DAV was founded by World War I veterans in Cincinnati in 1920 and chartered by the United States Congress in 1932. DAV (www.dav.org) is a non-profit organization with 1.2 million members. DAV and RecruitMilitary share a common mission: to connect America’s veterans and their family members with meaningful and fulfilling employment opportunities, and to help employers attract, appreciate and retain veterans, spouses, and their survivors.
