DAV RecruitMilitary Vet Job Fair Arriving in Orlando on December 10

Orlando, FL (PR Log) November 9, 2015 - DAV and RecruitMilitary will produce an All Veterans Career Fair at Heaven Event Center on Thursday, December 10, 2015. The event will run from 11 a.m. until 3 p.m.

“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 May, the DAV-RecruitMilitary Orlando event connected more than 350 veteran job seekers with 45 exhibitors, including Lockheed Martin, JP Morgan Chase, and Universal Studios. Participating companies expected to conduct up to 366 interviews and offer up to 106 jobs as a result of that career fair.

RecruitMilitary has produced veteran job fairs since 2006, and has held four events in Orlando, drawing 1,150 attendees and 156 exhibitors. By the end of 2015, the company will have produced more than 814 events in 65 cities across the country. RecruitMilitary will return to Orlando to host two 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.
