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

In August of 2016, the DAV-RecruitMilitary Dallas event connected more than 650 veteran job seekers with 84 exhibitors, including Apple, Farmers Insurance and Lockheed Martin Corporation. Participating companies expected to conduct up to 710 interviews and make up to 210 job offers as a result of that career fair.
