RecruitMilitary Veteran Job Fair Coming to New Orleans on March 3

LOVELAND, Ohio - Feb. 1, 2016 - PRLog -- The military-to-civilian recruitment firm RecruitMilitary will produce a Veteran Career Fair at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome on Thursday, March 3, 2016. TravelCenters of America will sponsor the event, which will run 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 August of 2015, the RecruitMilitary New Orleans event connected more than 363 veteran job seekers with 44 exhibitors, including Apple, Inc., Lockheed Martin, Cargill, Kellogg’s, and Entergy. Participating companies expected to conduct up to 491 interviews and make up to 180 job offers as a result of that career fair.

RecruitMilitary has produced veteran job fairs since 2006, and has held 14 events in New Orleans, drawing 4,056 attendees and 474 exhibitors. The company has produced more than 814 events in 65 cities across the country. RecruitMilitary will return to New Orleans for an additional veteran career fair in August.
