DAV RecruitMilitary Vet Job Fair Arriving in San Diego on December 3

San Diego, CA (PR Log) November 2, 2015 - DAV and RecruitMilitary will produce an All Veterans Career Fair at Scottish Rite Event Center on Thursday, December 3, 2015. The event will run from 11 a.m. until 3 p.m.

“RecruitMilitary job fairs maintain a solid 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 August, the DAV-RecruitMilitary San Diego event connected more than 350 veteran job seekers with more than 70 exhibitors, including Apple Inc., The Home Depot, and JPMorgan Chase. Participating companies expected to conduct up to 300 interviews and offer up to 140 jobs as a result of that career fair.

RecruitMilitary has produced veteran job fairs since 2006, and has held 28 events in San Diego, drawing more than 11,000 attendees and more than 1,000 exhibitors. By the end of 2015, the company will have produced more than 814 events in 65 cities across the country. RecruitMilitary plans to return to San Diego to host three more veteran career fairs 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. Through career fairs, outreach and resources, this partnership fights to ensure veterans receive the benefits they’ve earned and are empowered to lead productive, dignified and high-quality lives that their service has made possible.
