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.”

The four myths and opportunities of hiring veterans today

“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.”

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. ”

Job fair for military veterans

“Recruit Military is a job-finding organization run by veterans to help folks leaving the service transition into civilian jobs. The group held their jobs expo at Sports Authority Field at Mile High, and hundreds of veterans showed up to meet with companies and colleges. “We probably do these fairs in about 60 cities around the nation,” said John Lundberg. “Our goal is to put vets i...”

Denver Job Expo Caters To Only Veterans

“Hundreds of thousands of veterans are among those looking for work. They came home from serving the country only to join the unemployment lines. Some companies are trying to hire veterans and they joined and impressive job expo held in Denver on Thursday. <script type='text/javascript' src='http://video.denver.cbslocal.com/global/video/videoplayer.js?rnd=596915;hostDomain=video.denver.cbslo...”

Job fair geared towards veterans, active military

“The transition from military service to civilian employment can be difficult, but a military recruitment fair is looking to make the job hunt a little easier. The Opportunity Expo will be at the Pepsi Center Thursday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.. RecruitMilitary.com is partnering with the American Legion to put on the event. John Lundberg with RecruitMilitary.com says over 40 organizations fr...”

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...”

Exhibitor Registration
I think that the recruiters representing their companies were truly interested in helping vets find employment opportunities.

The exhibitors were quite friendly and helpful, even to the point of suggesting other exhibitors who might have been a better fit.

Healthcare recruiter, 3/27/2014 Houston Career Fair
This is the first and only career fair that has been worthwhile. This is a great event and needs to be recognized as the industry standard.
4/17/14 Denver Career Fair -- Army O-4
This event was well organized and the exhibitors were ready and eager to answer all the questions I had. I was able to get many more job contacts at this event than I would have been able to get on my own.
4/17/14 Denver Career Fair -- Army E-2
This was the best job fair experience I've ever had. The people of RecruitMilitary made what is normally an uncomfortable experience very comfortable.
4/17/14 Denver Career Fair -- USAF E-4
I received a job that very day!
1/30/14 OKC Career Fair -- Army E-6
Four of the people I spoke with today could come work for me tomorrow! Great event!
August 2014 Employer -- Financial Services recruiter
Overall, I had a very good experience. I would definitely attend other RecruitMilitary veteran career fairs when they become available.
9/11/14 Denver Career Fair (Navy E-5)
Communications regarding the fair and participating vendors was outstanding. I was able to prepare and visit those that had employment available in my skill set. Definitely recommend!
9/11/14 Denver Career Fair (USAF E-8)
If you do your research beforehand and come prepared you will have success at this job fair. I came away with 2 interviews and 3 other companies that expressed great interest! By far the best job fair I have attended!
9/11/14 Denver Career Fair (Army E-6)
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.
