At a Veteran Job Fair, you can begin the selection process with what is normally one of the final stages of a face-to-face meeting with the candidate. We present these events in cooperation with leading corporations, news media, industry associations, veterans organizations, and government agencies. All Veteran Job Fairs take place in major military markets. To attract job candidates to the fairs, we promote the events intensively to our huge database of registered candidates, and we run display ads in major newspapers in the areas where they will take place.

Why Hire Veterans?

If you are not familiar with hiring veterans, we would like to share three reasons why military personnel will make great employees for your organization:

  • Well-trained. Veterans possess skills that are critical for an organization to succeed. They are trained to be mission-oriented and to work as a team. They possess critical skills for organizational success including discipline, responsibility, respect, and unparalleled work ethic.
  • Skills that overlap. Veterans have been trained in specific skills that greatly overlap civilian work. Whether driving an 18-wheel tractor-trailer or leading an organization in an executive position, the military provides people with the training to be successful in trades, as well as the experience and conditioning required for management positions.
  • Diverse backgrounds. The military employs a highly diverse workforce. Approximately 45% of our candidates are women and/or ethnic minorities, enabling you to connect with skilled and diverse candidates through our events.

Venue Information

  • Exhibitor set up is between 9:00 a.m. and 10:30 a.m.

  • The Job Fair will take place on the 2nd level - 200 level Sky Bridge. Enter the stadium through the main entrance (you will see a giant Falcon statue) and take the escalator to the second level.

  • Please allow additional time to pass through stadium security measures which may fluctuate based on what is taking place in and around the stadium. Official law enforcement should be prepared to show credentials and be asked to wear a wrist band to retain their weapons. All other attendees will be asked to leave weapons outside of the stadium.

  • Coffee will be available at 9:00 a.m. in a designated portion of the event space marked with RecruitMilitary "Exhibitors Only" signage.

  • The Exhibitors lunch will be served in a designated portion of the event space from 1:30 pm - 3:00 pm. The space will be marked with RecruitMilitary "Exhibitors Only" signage.

  • Clients requiring access to electric should contact RecruitMilitary in advance to make payment and should bring their own power strip and extension cords. Without prior notification and payment, there is no guarantee electric will be provided.

  • Complimentary WiFi is available.

Shipping Instructions

Due to the high costs charged by the stadium to receive and ship items, Exhibitors are asked to ship into and out of their respective hotels. Should an exhibitor disregard this request and opt to ship to the stadium, that exhibitor will be billed following the event.

RecruitMilitary Shipping Policy: Any fees incurred by RecruitMilitary at those events for which venues charge to receive and/or ship out packages will be passed on to the client/exhibitor. These fees are the sole responsibility of the client/exhibitor.

Parking Information

Parking is available in the Red Deck or the Silver Deck lot. Both lots bring you directly to the main entrance of the stadium (noted by the giant Falcon statue). Applicable parking rates apply.

If you are parked on the Silver Deck, take the elevator to the TOP floor and walk toward the stadium. Enter via the main entrance (where the BIG FALCON is located).

Note - as you come off the interstate, you will be on the North side and will need to circle the building to get to the parking. Google Maps address is 441 Martin Luther King Jr Drive NW.

Recruit Military to have veterans job fair on Feb. 2

“RecruitMilitary will have a veterans job fair on Feb. 2 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Cobb Galleria Centre, Two Galleria Parkway in the Cumberland area. This is a free hiring event for veterans, transitioning military personnel, National Guard members, Reserve members and spouses.”

The Hire More Heroes Act is misguided. There is no veterans’ unemployment crisis.

“Americans may be shocked to learn that there is no veterans’ unemployment crisis. The unemployment rate in 2014 for post-9/11 veterans was 7.2 percent, the lowest level in seven years of tracking these veterans. ”

What Government Should Actually Do To Support Veterans' Employment

“The latest crisis at the Department of Veterans Affairs has called into question again the proper role of government in the care of our veterans. Whereas healthcare is clearly in shambles, veterans’ employment is another realm in which well-meaning government involvement has been inefficient at best and ineffective or counterproductive at worst. ”

Employment and Returning Veterans

“Peter Gudmundsson talked about the availability of jobs for returning service members.”

Beyond Altruism

“Among the fondest memories Peter Gudmundsson ’85 has of his three years as an active-duty U.S. Marine officer was the time in 1987 when, off the coast of Vietnam, he stood on the deck of a U.S. Navy ship looking up at the Soviet planes flying overhead. What was particularly memorable, he says, was not the plane flying overhead, but the reaction of the men in his platoon”

Money For Lunch

“Money for Lunch host Bert Martinez interviewed Peter Gudmundsson. Discussed veteran hiring.”

Helping veterans overcome job search challenges

“Mike Rollins is featured on America Now. Recently, America Now visited a RecruitMilitary job fair held at the Hurst Conference Center in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. ”

Veteran Job Fair Held

“FOX 5 (WAGA) - Veterans filled the Georgia Dome in search of employment on Thursday. The career fair was geared exclusively for veterans and their spouses. The job expo allowed jobseekers to meet face to face with a wide range of companies.”

Job fair held for military veterans in Atlanta

“FOX 5 (WAGA) - Hundreds of veterans turned out seeking employment at a job fair in Atlanta on Thursday.”

Employers step up to the plate for veterans at Turner Field

“by John Brieske Almost everyone agrees that the men and women in uniform deserve our support while they’re serving in the U.S. military. But what about when those folks are transitioning from the military to a civilian life? The people at RecruitMilitary LLC, want to help. The Cincinnati-based organization – along with The American Legion, Purple Heart Services and the Military Spouse...”

TN veterans face tough battle to find employment

“By Naomi Snyder Terry Pack was an aircraft mechanic serving in the Army in Iraq, spending two of the last six years in combat overseas. Now that he's done his service for the country, he can't even get a job doing oil changes at Sears. "It's tough,'' said the unemployed Clarksville veteran, who was honorably discharged in January. "I've been looking for any job." A congressional hea...”

Veterans and Jobs

“Matt Murphy, RecruitMilitary's Senior VP of Business Development and Sales is a guest on Washington Journal to talk about a recent report that shows the jobless rate for veterans of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars is over eleven percent. He talks about connecting employers, educational institutions, and franchisors to veterans because of their character, skills and training, diversity, and securi...”
