DAV and RecruitMilitary to Produce All Veterans Career Fair in Orlando on April 21

LOVELAND, Ohio - March 18, 2016 - PRLog -- DAV and RecruitMilitary will produce an All Veterans Career Fair at Heaven Event Center on Thursday, April 21, 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. "Just last year, 56.3% 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 38,700 interviews and more than 12,000 job offers."

In December of 2015, the DAV-RecruitMilitary Orlando event connected more than 318 veteran job seekers with 38 exhibitors, including Raytheon, Universal Studios, and Hearst Television. Participating companies expected to conduct up to 244 interviews and make up to 62 job offers as a result of that career fair.

RecruitMilitary has produced veteran job fairs since 2006 and has held five events in Orlando, drawing 1,468 attendees and 197 exhibitors. The company has produced more than 814 events in 65 cities across the country. RecruitMilitary will return to Orlando to host an additional veteran career fair in 2016.

DAV was founded by World War I veterans in Cincinnati in 1920 and chartered by the United States Congress in 1932. DAV (www.dav.org) is a non-profit organization with 1.2 million members.

DAV and RecruitMilitary share a common mission: to connect America's veterans and their family members with meaningful and fulfilling employment opportunities, and to help employers attract, appreciate and retain veterans, spouses, and their survivors. Through career fairs, outreach and resources, this partnership fights to ensure veterans receive the benefits they've earned and are empowered to lead productive, dignified and high-quality lives that their service has made possible.
