RecruitMilitary Veteran Job Fair Coming to Miami on February 25

LOVELAND, Ohio - Jan. 22, 2016 - PRLog -- The military-to-civilian recruitment firm RecruitMilitary will produce a Veteran Career Fair at Kovens Conference Center at Florida International University on Thursday, February 25, 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 September of 2015, the RecruitMilitary Miami event connected more than 258 veteran job seekers with 33 exhibitors, including Apple, Inc., Lockheed Martin, and Jet Blue Airways. Participating companies expected to conduct up to 271 interviews and make up to 90 job offers as a result of that career fair.

RecruitMilitary has produced veteran job fairs since 2006, and has held 12 events in Miami, drawing 3,436 attendees and 393 exhibitors. The company has produced more than 814 events in 65 cities across the country. RecruitMilitary will return to Miami for an additional veteran career fair in September.
