DAV and RecruitMilitary to Produce All Veterans Career Fair in Washington on March 24

LOVELAND, Ohio - Feb. 12, 2016 - PRLog -- DAV and RecruitMilitary will produce an All Veterans Career Fair at Nationals Park on Thursday, March 24, 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 November of 2015, the DAV-RecruitMilitary Washington event connected more than 271 veteran job seekers with 59 exhibitors, including Lockheed Martin, Apple, Inc., and Accenture. Participating companies expected to conduct up to 334 interviews and make up to 106 job offers as a result of that career fair.

RecruitMilitary has produced veteran job fairs since 2006 and has held 18 events in Washington, drawing 5,608 attendees and 847 exhibitors. The company has produced more than 814 events in 65 cities across the country. RecruitMilitary will return to Washington to host two additional veteran career fairs in 2016.
