"RecruitMilitary job fairs maintain a track record of helping veterans find meaningful employment," said President and CEO Peter Gudmundsson.

In May of 2016, the DAV-RecruitMilitary New York City event connected more than 290 veteran job seekers with 82 exhibitors, including Bank of America, Mars Chocolate and Marsh & McLennan Companies. Participating companies expected to conduct up to 563 interviews and make up to 110 job offers as a result of that career fair.
