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.

Facility Access Information

Fort Hood requires a pre-approved "Access Roster" be submitted by RecruitMilitary prior to the event date. Roster MUST include ALL attendees from every company in attendance. Please be sure you have provided the appropriate information needed for this roster NO LATER THAN 5:00pm EST on Monday, November 19, 2018. If you have not submitted information for the access roster by the above mentioned deadline, please allow extra time on the morning of the event to allow for the screening process.

NOTE: **Starting October 10, 2015, visitors seeking access to military bases using their state-issued driver's licenses or identification cards must present proper identification issued by REAL ID compliant states or a state that has received an extension. As the government is continuously updating the list of compliant state documents, please visit the REAL ID ACT website HERE for the most up to date listing of acceptable licenses. If your driver's license is from a state colored red, your license will not be accepted and other allowable documentation must be used.


**Educational Entities – You are required to “request base access” in order to attend the events on Army installations. This is base protocol and must be completed between you and this specific base. Please follow the link www.goarmyed.com and the directions in the following link: (ACES Field Call). Please email evidence of approval to basesupport@recruitmilitary.com


INSTALLATION ACCESS PROCEDURES
If you do not have a military ID and have not been pre-approved, you must request a pass at the Marvin Leath Visitor's Center off T.J. Mills Blvd (prior to the East gate). Those who have been pre-approved should enter via the East Gate (stay in the lane to the farthest right).

ALL vendors must possess the following item(s) or you will not be allowed access to the military installation or the Job Fair:


  1. You must present the following: Military Identification Card (Active, Reserve/Guard, Retiree ID); or Civilian/Contractor CAC Card) OR Non-military photo ID.
  2. Current state driver’s license (See above for Non-Approved State IDs)
  3. Current automobile registration or rental car contract.
  4. Current proof of automobile insurance or rental car contract.
  5. If your driver’s license, passport or other identification has expired or is no longer valid you "WILL NOT" be allowed to enter the post.
  6. As part of security measures on a military post your vehicle may be subject to inspection. This is part of the security measures against any terrorist threats. Please cooperate with security and their mission.

(NOTE: All military installations and facilities reserve the right to refuse admittance to any installation or military facility. RecruitMilitary is not responsible for local installation policies and cannot grant access or override base policies.)

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. ”

“Good Day Austin with Amanda FOX 7 (KTBC)- Interviewed Steve B. in their studio at 6:50 am on the day of the event. ”

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. ”

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...”
