DAV and RecruitMilitary Kick off 2016 with Vet Job Fair in Tampa on January 14

LOVELAND, Ohio - Dec. 15, 2015 - PRLog -- DAV and RecruitMilitary will produce an All Veterans Career Fair at Straz Center for the Performing Arts on Thursday, January 14, 2016. J.P. Morgan Chase & Company will sponsor the event, which 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 August of 2015, the DAV-RecruitMilitary Tampa event connected more than 485 veteran job seekers with 62 exhibitors, including Apple, Price Waterhouse Coopers, The Home Depot, and General Electric. Participating companies expected to conduct up to 481 interviews and offer up to 187 jobs as a result of that career fair.

RecruitMilitary has produced veteran job fairs since 2006, and has held 18 events in Tampa, drawing 7,453 attendees and 672 exhibitors. The company has produced more than 814 events in 65 cities across the country. RecruitMilitary will return to Tampa to host another veteran career fair in July 2016.
