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.

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”

Best / most productive job fair I've attended. I didn't make it to the lunch because I was so busy. Thank you!
San Diego -- Non-profit recruiter
Always a good job fair. Very accommodating event staff.
San Diego -- Government recruiter
Friendlier than expected and very easy to talk with high profile vendors. I did not have to wait around and there were plenty of people to talk to. All seemed very interested in talking to me whether they had a job for me or not, and most did.
San Diego -- Air Force E-4
Excellent job fair with on-site interviews in a wide variety of occupations.
San Diego -- Branch / Rank not indicated
If you are looking for highly skilled employees with excellent skills, this is the place. All DAV/RM events are great.
San Diego -- Staffing recruiter
The event was great. We were able to contact a large number of people who were extremely interested in the department. We look forward to the next event. Keep up the great work! Semper Fi.
San Diego -- Law Enforcement and Security recruiter
I was excited to attend the job fair after all of the good things I have heard, but I was not expecting to walk in to so many available jobs. Was way more than I expected. I have recommended to all of my thousands of friends.
San Diego -- Navy W-4
This is an outstanding event and worth the time to attend.
