I was very pleased with the profesional atmosphere and attitude. Something I seldom see in these events where non-military people run them. If you are looking for a job or career in this tough economy, you have to try every opportunity.

The pre-event emails really helped me to prepare. This is the second RecruitMilitary Expo I’ve been to, and they were both good. I’m gaining confidence and experience.

The RecruitMilitary Opportunity Expo had a great cross section of exhibitors with job opportunities that spanned military contractors, hospitals, colleges, engineering/manufacturing, public service groups and a host of others. I am very satisfied that I attended.

It was very well organized, in a great location, and I spoke to a number of high quality and qualified candidates who I’d like to speak to further.

The event was well organized and in a comfortable environment, which is already better than other events I’ve attended. There were also more candidates and candidates of higher quality at this event.
