Payment Information

Veteran Opportunity Expo Cancellation Policy

RecruitMilitary does not offer refunds. If an exhibitor is unable to attend a Veteran Opportunity Expo (“Expo”) for which it has already registered, RecruitMilitary will make every effort to allow the exhibitor to attend a future Expo, provided the exhibitor attends the Expo within twelve months of the Invoice Date. However, to qualify, RecruitMilitary must receive a cancellation request at least ten business days' prior to the date of the Expo for which you were registered. Unpaid invoices must be paid whether or not the exhibitor attends the event for which it originally registered. Cancellation requests must be sent via e-mail to support@recruitmilitary.com, and must be received by the stated cancellation deadline. If a cancellation request is received fewer than ten business days before the Expo, or if the exhibitor does not show up at the Expo at all, then that exhibitor will not be entitled to transfer its registration to a new Expo.

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”

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. ”

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

He talks about connecting employers, educational institutions, and franchisors to veterans because of their character, skills and training, diversity, and securi...”

Interest Attendee Count Percentage
RecruitMilitary has held 31 events in Atlanta, drawing 14,531 attendees and 1,259 exhibitors.
The entire Expo was well put together. It started on time, was well explained, and we were allowed as much time as we needed with each company. The expo area was well placed with a variety of companies. It was not crowded and all the companies were very friendly and made time for you. It was well worth the 26 mile drive into the city. Support staff was very polite and helpful. I will recommend this to all our men and women in uniform.
Atlanta Career Fair -- Attendee
Overall, the RecruitMilitary Opportunity Expo was a great experience. I phoned my friends and told them to attend any RecruitMilitary Opportunity Expos held in their area.
Atlanta Career Fair -- Attendee
RecruitMilitary always provides outstanding candidates in a great venue. Always an outstanding event in comparison to others.
Atlanta Career Fair -- Government Agency HR Manager
I rate the event very high. It was well organized and put together. The candidates came very prepared and presented well.
Atlanta Career Fair -- Defense Industry Recruiter
Better than most and the best of the military specific veteran recruitment and placement companies. Very well organized.
Atlanta Career Fair -- Engineering & Project Management Recruiter
This was by far the best career fair I attended in the four months I was unemployed. The quality of employers and jobs available was unmatched. In addition I felt that the recruiters at this event were taking their jobs much more seriously than recruiters at other career fairs.
Atlanta Career Fair -- Attendee
I had all but given up on career fairs, but the attention and detail by RecruitMilitary and the caliber of exhibitors prompted me to attend. It turned out well. We made contact, went through a thorough interview process that included 2 in-person and a few online assessment interviews. The last in person interview produced a job offer.
Atlanta Career Fair -- Attendee
Excellent event! I lost my job last week but because of this event, it looks like I may be back to work as early as in a few weeks, plus getting free training!
March 2014 - Veteran Job Seeker, Army National Guard - E6
The organization was superb. The information provided was expansive and met all my needs on a timely basis. This was my first one but it won't be my last!
Atlanta Career Fair -- Financial Services Recruiter
RecruitMilitary continues to be the best career support service in town. Thank you for giving the best to those who willingly committed to making the ultimate sacrifice for fellow countrymen and country.
Atlanta Career Fair -- Navy E-8
I received a job that very day!
1/30/14 OKC Career Fair -- Army E-6
I was very pleased with the diversity of exhibitors. There truly was something for everyone.
Atlanta Career Fair -- Attendee
Four of the people I spoke with today could come work for me tomorrow! Great event!
August 2014 Employer -- Financial Services recruiter
Do your research and dress for the occasion. Bring at least two different resumes, one which targets the job you are trying to land. The other should be a more broad based, generic one highlighting all of the jobs skills you have.
Nov 2014 Attendee -- Navy E-7
