DAV and RecruitMilitary to Produce All Veterans Career Fair in Houston on March 10

LOVELAND, Ohio - Feb. 5, 2016 - PRLog -- DAV and RecruitMilitary will produce an All Veterans Career Fair at Minute Maid Park on Thursday, March 10, 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 December of 2015, the DAV-RecruitMilitary Houston event connected more than 513 veteran job seekers with 70 exhibitors, including Accenture, CBRE, Comcast, and KBR. Participating companies expected to conduct up to 694 interviews and make up to 229 job offers as a result of that career fair.

RecruitMilitary has produced veteran job fairs since 2006 and has held 30 events in Houston, drawing 14,233 attendees and 1,704 exhibitors. The company has produced more than 814 events in 65 cities across the country. RecruitMilitary will return to Houston to host three additional veteran career fairs in 2016.
