DAV and RecruitMilitary Kick off 2016 with Vet Job Fair in Raleigh on January 28

LOVELAND, Ohio - Jan. 2, 2016 - PRLog -- DAV and RecruitMilitary will produce an All Veterans Career Fair at Vaughn Towers at Carter-Finley Stadium on Thursday, January 28, 2016. 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 August of 2015, the DAV-RecruitMilitary Raleigh event connected more than 302 veteran job seekers with 44 exhibitors, including Apple, General Electric, Lockheed Martin, and Merck. Participating companies expected to conduct up to 309 interviews and make up to 77 job offers as a result of that career fair.

RecruitMilitary has produced veteran job fairs since 2006, and has held 15 events in Raleigh, drawing 4,608 attendees and 418 exhibitors. The company has produced more than 814 events in 65 cities across the country. RecruitMilitary will return to Raleigh to host an additional veteran career fair in August.

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.
