RecruitMilitary Veteran Job Fair Coming to Baltimore on February 11
LOVELAND, Ohio - Jan. 15, 2016 - PRLog -- The military-to-civilian recruitment firm RecruitMilitary will produce a Veteran Career Fair at M&T Stadium on Thursday, February 11, 2016 from 11 a.m. until 3 p.m.
“RecruitMilitary job fairs maintain a solid 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 October of 2015, the RecruitMilitary Baltimore event connected more than 233 veteran job seekers with 56 exhibitors, including Lockheed Martin, Johns Hopkins Health System, and The Home Depot. Participating companies expected to conduct up to 474 interviews and make up to 137 job offers as a result of that career fair.
RecruitMilitary has produced veteran job fairs since 2006, and has held 21 events in Baltimore, drawing 5,333 attendees and 869 exhibitors. The company has produced more than 814 events in 65 cities across the country. RecruitMilitary will return to Baltimore for two additional veteran career fairs in 2016.
Among those companies attending the upcoming Baltimore event are First Command Financial Planning; General Dynamics Electric Boat; JPMorgan Chase & Co.; Kaiser Permanente; Maryland Department of Public Safety and Correctional Services; Military Sealift Command; IMPAQ International; New York Life; Brothers Services Company; Combined Insurance; Comcast; DS Services of America, Inc.; Farmers Insurance; First Coast Security; Hearst Television, Inc.; Heavy Construction Academy; ISEC International, Inc.; Jones Junction; Klappenberger & Son; Lieberman & Mark; Service Corporation International; and Waste Management.
