Payment Information

Additional Representatives Policy

Your booth purchase includes representatives. The attendance of any additional representatives will require a $50 fee per additional representative which will allow us to provide the appropriate accommodations for the number of recruiters that attend the event on behalf of your organization. If your organization has any additional representatives show up on the day of the event without paying the fee in advance, you will be invoiced $50 for each representative, on the day of the event.

Cancellation Policy

RecruitMilitary does not offer refunds. If an exhibitor is unable to attend a Veteran Opportunity Expo (“Expo”) for which it has already registered, RecruitMilitary will make every effort to allow the exhibitor to attend a future Expo, provided the exhibitor attends the Expo within twelve months of the Invoice Date. However, to qualify, RecruitMilitary must receive a cancellation request at least ten business days' prior to the date of the Expo for which you were registered. Unpaid invoices must be paid whether or not the exhibitor attends the event for which it originally registered. Cancellation requests must be sent via e-mail to support@recruitmilitary.com, and must be received by the stated cancellation deadline. If a cancellation request is received fewer than ten business days before the Expo, or if the exhibitor does not show up at the Expo at all, then that exhibitor will not be entitled to transfer its registration to a new Expo.

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. ”

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.”

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...”

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...”

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!
Denver Career Fair -- Army E-6
Well put together and organized. This job fair was laid out better than others. I am a veteran myself and I know how important it is to help our vets get a proper step into a new career.
8/25/16 Denver Career Fair -- Restaurant & Food Services Recruiter

4/13/17 Denver Career Fair -- Services Recruiter
Much better than other general job fairs. I was really impressed with the candidates at this event. Well-prepared, professional appearance, and knew of our company!
4/13/17 Denver Career Fair -- Services Recruiter
This is a great opportunity to engage with members of several companies! Park the car, walk in, and they are waiting for YOU.
4/13/17 Denver Career Fair -- Attendee
It was so easy to find who was going to be there. I have gone to several other job fairs that had no recruiters in my field, but I could not find who was going to be there prior to going so they were a huge waste of my time. You guys, on the other hand, were awesome. And besides this, you had a great deal of companies that I wanted to speak with.
