Payment Information

Veteran Opportunity Expo 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, 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. ”

Career fair Thursday for veterans and spouses

“INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – Veterans and their spouses looking for a job will get the chance Thursday to meet with dozens of employers at a free career fair designed specifically for them. ”

Career fair held Thursday for veterans and spouses

“INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – Local veterans and their spouses met with dozens of employers at a career fair Thursday specifically for them. The fair is organized by Recruit Military, a national company that connects veterans with jobs, and the Disabled American Veterans. It was held from 11 a.m. until 3 p.m. at the Indianapolis Museum of Art on Michigan Road.”

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. ”

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...”

This by far surpassed my expectations! I think it was a great event with great candidates! We can’t wait to get involved in other cities!
Recruiter, Retail Industry, June 2013 Indianapolis Expo
Much better than other job fairs. Well organized. Total support provided. Genuine care and concern shown for vendors and clients.
Recruiter, Educational Institution, June 2013 Indianapolis Expo
Better organized, higher quality candidates than other Job Fairs.
Recruiter, Financial Services Industry, June 2013 Indianapolis Expo
I am thankful that I went to this event and received the contacts that I did! I was running into a brick wall in my job search. I feel I am on the right track now and moving forward with a company that was associated with the RecruitMilitary Expo.
Veteran Job Seeker -- 6/20/13 Indianapolis Career Fair
Excellent event. Please continue making this an available resource for veterans.
Veteran Job Seeker -- 6/20/13 Indianapolis Career Fair
Excellent event! I lost my job last week but because of this event, it looks like I may be back to work as early as in a few weeks, plus getting free training!
March 2014 - Veteran Job Seeker, Army National Guard - E6
I received a job that very day!
1/30/14 OKC Career Fair -- Army E-6
This tops any and all events that I have ever attended.
7-10-14 Indianapolis Career Fair -- Transportation/Logistics recruiter
I was impressed with the professionalism & passion that the organizers expressed. Truly great people with one thing on their mind....TO HELP VETERANS make the sometimes tough transition from military to civilian life. I know because I've been there. Great job to all who put this together!!!
7-10-14 Indianapolis Career Fair -- Law Enforcement and Security recruiter
This was our first military job fair and we were very impressed. It was run very well and had a great turn out. We will definitely be interested in attending another one in the future.
7-10-14 Indianapolis Career Fair -- IT recruiter
This was probably the best career fair that I have been to. I made many new contacts that I believe will result in interviews and a new career for myself. Thank you.
7-10-14 Indianapolis Career Fair -- Army E-4
Four of the people I spoke with today could come work for me tomorrow! Great event!
August 2014 Employer -- Financial Services recruiter
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.
1-15-15 San Antonio Career Fair attendee (Army O-3)
Don't skip exhibits assuming that they aren't hiring for your particular skills. For example, trucking companies still need finance & admin personnel, insurance agencies still need tech support personnel, etc.
7/9/15 Indianapolis career fair attendee (Army E-5)
