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

Job Fair for Veterans at Gillette Stadium

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.”

Who Attended?

Loved it. General job fairs have individuals "looking" to see what's out there. Your RecruitMilitary fair has serious applicants. Love the caliber of people in the show.
Boston Career Fair -- Insurance Recruiter
Plenty of viable jobs. All you need is a great resume, a good suit, a warm smile, and firm handshake. RecruitMilitary will help with everything except for the smile...
Boston Career Fair -- Navy E-7
It's very well put together. Obviously the organizational efforts that go into putting on the event are exceptional. The venue and the caliber of candidates was great. The event is awesome - above and beyond that of other career fairs.
Boston Career Fair -- Law Enforcement and Security Recruiter
Very positive. We are looking to future events with RM! The quality of veterans' work experience and technical / interpersonal skills was very high. The staff was highly professional and the venue was excellent.
Boston Career Fair -- Financial Services Recruiter
I secured an interview from a vendor, interviewed the following Monday, and signed a job offer a week to the day after the job fair!
Boston Career Fair -- Air Force E-4
Everyone was very personable and professional. They made an inherently stressful experience almost pleasant. The organization and proficiency of the organizers surely set the stage for this environment and their contributions are appreciated.

Great event -- well run, terrific location, great staff and attendees, reasonable cost. Strongly recommend.
Boston -- Information Technology recruiter
It is an event that is very well run and the feeling you get after helping one of our veterans find a job is priceless.
Boston -- Government recruiter
Come prepared. Companies loved that I showed up knowing even a little about their company. Companies were actively seeking to fit me within their organizations, even if my background was not directly in line with their product.
Boston -- Navy E-6
Everyone was very friendly, starting from the hosts at the entrance. They were very professional and conscious about our needs to start a new career or new job.
