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

LOVELAND, Ohio - Feb. 5, 2016 - PRLog -- DAV and RecruitMilitary will produce an All Veterans Career Fair at the Jacksonville Veterans Memorial Arena 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 Jacksonville event connected more than 450 veteran job seekers with 49 exhibitors, including Lockheed Martin and Apple, Inc. Participating companies expected to conduct up to 422 interviews and make up to 166 job offers as a result of that career fair.
