“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. ”
“The Irving Convention Center at Las Colinas was the site of what organizers describe as the largest RecruitMilitary event ever. The event is held across the country and helps connect veterans and their spouses with jobs.”
“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. ”
“Peter Gudmundsson talked about the availability of jobs for returning service members.”
“In an era when “support our troops” bumper stickers are common and billboards and radio advertisements abound with rallying calls to give veterans a job, it is not surprising that many employers are overwhelmed and confused. Good intentions permeate most efforts to employ veterans at the national, state and local levels.”
“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 host Bert Martinez interviewed Peter Gudmundsson. Discussed veteran hiring.”
“Peter Gudmundsson wants to tamp down the idea that hiring veterans is your patriotic duty. The 50-year-old CEO of RecruitMilitary believes that tapping this growing pool of skilled, disciplined and hardworking workers is simply good business sense.”
“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. ”
“NBC 5 (KXAS) Dallas/Ft. Worth - Veterans looking for work got some help on Thursday.”
“The Dallas Morning News - Before the doors to the job fair opened this morning, a few hundred veterans were already milling around in the lobby. The fair is one of many that RecruitMilitary and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce put on across the country, with the goal of reducing high unemployment levels among veterans. About 90 companies recruited at the event at the Irving Convention Center. ”
“Returning to civilian life is tough enough for veterans. Finding a job can be even a bigger challenge.”
“Military families reunited with loved ones, back from tours of duty overseas, are finding a new battle on the home front - landing a job.”
“Hundreds of veterans looking for jobs attended a job expo in Las Colinas on Thursday. Veterans said they were grateful for the opportunity to meet many potential employers. "There is some difficulty translating what you've done in the military and how companies can take advantage of it," veteran P.J. Preddy said.”

“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...”
“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...”
