DAV and RecruitMilitary to Produce All Veterans Career Fair in New York on February 18

LOVELAND, Ohio - Jan. 15, 2016 - PRLog -- DAV and RecruitMilitary will produce an All Veterans Career Fair at The New Yorker Hotel on Thursday, February 18, 2016. JP Morgan Chase 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 September of 2015, the DAV-RecruitMilitary New York event connected more than 531 veteran job seekers with 75 exhibitors, including Apple, JP Morgan Chase, and Jet Blue Airways. Participating companies expected to conduct up to 700 interviews and make up to 211 job offers as a result of that career fair.

RecruitMilitary has produced veteran job fairs since 2006 and has held 18 events in New York, drawing 6,457 attendees and 820 exhibitors. The company has produced more than 814 events in 65 cities across the country. RecruitMilitary will return to New York to host two additional 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.
