RecruitMilitary Veteran Job Fair Coming to Sacramento on January 21

LOVELAND, Ohio - Dec. 18, 2015 - PRLog -- The military-to-civilian recruitment firm RecruitMilitary will produce a Veteran Career Fair at the Sacramento Marriott Rancho Cordova on Thursday, January 21, 2016 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 July of 2015, the RecruitMilitary Sacramento event connected more than 265 veteran job seekers with 44 exhibitors, including Apple, Cintas, and Starbucks. Participating companies expected to conduct up to 352 interviews and make up to 94 job offers as a result of that career fair.

RecruitMilitary has produced veteran job fairs since 2006, and has held 8 events in Sacramento, drawing 2,598 attendees and 188 exhibitors. The company has produced more than 814 events in 65 cities across the country. RecruitMilitary will return to Sacramento to host an additional veteran career fair in July of 2016.
