Job fair for veterans and military spouses held Thursday at M&T Bank Stadium

“BALTIMORE - Hundreds of veterans were at M&T Bank Stadium looking for jobs Thursday. ”

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.”

Recruit Military hosting job fair for veterans in Baltimore

“With news of President Barack Obama's plan to bring troops home from Afghanistan, groups like Recruit Military are preparing and expanding to take care of veterans in search of work. Director of military outreach for Recruit Military said the organization is in 30 cities, hosting more than 70 job fairs a year for military veterans.”

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. ”

WBAL (NBC 11) M&T Bank Stadium to host job fair for veterans

“Military veterans looking for a job should head to M&T Bank Stadium on Thursday as dozens of companies from all over the region will be there with open spots to fill, and it's also where veterans can get resume help and interview training. Jennifer Franciotti reports.”

Local Vets Making The Most Of The Job Search

“(WBAL-AM) Local military veterans spent the day meeting and networking with veteran-friendly employers in Baltimore at M&T Bank Stadium. ”

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...”

I had never been to one of these Expos, but am certainly glad I drove over. I walked away with 4 or 5 great opportunities.

Great diversity of the types of firms represented, both local and national. Event provides access to firms and career opportunities that you wouldn’t necessarily have considered or explored.

I thought this job fair exceeded others that I have attended. The number and quality of our veteran applicants are all tributes to their respective service. The planning and organization of the RecruitMilitary Job Fair exceeded all of my expectations.

Baltimore Career Fair -- Navy E-5
When one is prepared for a RecruitMilitary event, there is a great opportunity that you will get an interview on the spot. This event was really a rewarding one as I was interviewed on the spot and hired. Thank you RecruitMilitary for the announcement and pre-registration information. This event has been a great blessing to me.

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
The recurring role of "talk to everyone" is extremely important and should be embraced by each job seeker. Please continue to stress the importance of networking, not only with the recruiters but with fellow job seekers to increase the likeliness of finding a hidden opportunity.
