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. ”

Deutsche Bank and RecruitMilitary to Host Career Fair for New England Area Veterans

“Deutsche Bank today announced a partnership with RecruitMilitary, a full-service military-to-civilian recruiting firm, to sponsor a career fair for U.S. veterans on Sept. 4, 2014, at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, MA, following the Deutsche Bank Championship golf tournament. ”

Job Fair for Veterans at Gillette Stadium

“Fox 25 Morning News, Melissa, interviewed Robert Arndt on Labor Day (September 1, 2014) about the RecruitMilitary veterans job fair that was being held at Gillette Stadium on September 4th.”

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.”

Job Fair for Veterans and Military Spouses at Gillette Stadium

“If you are a veteran looking for a job or you know a vet looking for a job then you will want to let them know about a very big event going on tomorrow at Gillette Stadium.”

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. ”

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...”

Who’s Registered?

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.
Boston Career Fair -- Attendee
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.
