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”

Exhibitor Packages
An excellent opportunity that should not be missed. Very thoroughly planned. Most importantly for me was knowing the companies that would be there and having the time to research them if I was unfamiliar with them.
Jacksonville Expo Attendee
The expo was very beneficial. There were a lot of top companies there. This was my 1st job expo and I loved it. It’s a great way to network. I would recommend others take full advantage of the opportunity. Thanks to everyone who made this possible and thanks to the employers who attended.

It is a place where a job seeker can feel comfortable talking to potential employers. This was my first time, and I am a spouse of a Veteran and had my husband come with me. He was glad he did.

Air Force Veteran Spouse, E7, past Jacksonville Attendee
This was my first expo and I’m sure when I first got there I looked lost and not sure where to begin. There were several exhibitors that extended a hand to talk to me which helped me to begin feeling a bit more comfortable. Also, I liked that there were people guiding us on where exactly to go to check in.
