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. ”

Big name employers attend veteran job fair

“WJXT-TV CH 4 - RecruitMilitary held a veteran job fair Thursday to help Jacksonville's former service members get back into the civilian workforce.”

Job fair for military veterans today.

“A job fair for military veterans and their spouses will be held at EverBank Field on Thursday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. More than 40 veteran-friendly employers will be there, including Vistakon, Gate Petroleum, L-3 Communications, McDonald's and Western-Southern Life. ”

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...”

Common Questions

  1. What is a RecruitMilitary Opportunity Expo?

    A RecruitMilitary Opportunity Expo is an event where transitioning military, veterans, and their spouses can meet with recruiters from dozens of companies. These events are free for attendees. To learn more, watch this video from one of our expos in Cincinnati, Ohio.

  2. Who are the exhibitors?

    RecruitMilitary Opportunity Expos are enhanced job fairs or career fairs with four kinds of exhibitors.

    1. Employers
    2. Franchisors
    3. Educational institutions
    4. Veterans associations and service agencies
  3. What if my only interest is getting a job?

    Even if you are not here to discuss continuing education, we recommend that you talk with the education recruiters.

    • Today’s institutions deliver learning opportunities in many ways other than traditional, full-time, daytime classes on a campus. So a few minutes of conversation may lead to an unexpected continuing-education solution that is right for you.
    • In addition, most of the institutions at our Expos are also large employers and might have job openings at a campus near you.
    • We have similar advice for job seekers who have not been thinking of going into business for themselves. Franchise opportunities are available in a tremendous variety of fields. Financing may be easier than you think, with surprising discounts for veterans.
  4. Are the employers actually hiring?

    Yes, and they have a number of different priorities and requirements. As a result, their recruiters interact with job seekers in a variety of ways.

    • Some recruiters have “hot fills,” job openings that they need to fill immediately. If you happen to qualify for a hot fill, the recruiter may take you to a separate area for a one-on-one interview.
    • Other recruiters are looking for transitioning and veteran military to apply for jobs that are almost always open. That kind of recruiter might ask for a paper résumé and/or give you a business card and ask you to call.
    • Some recruiters have positions that are not available right now, but will be opening up soon. These employers want to identify candidates and get them in the pipeline now so they can fill those positions as soon as possible when they receive hiring approval.
  5. Why don’t all employers accept paper résumés?

    A federal regulation called the OFCCP Internet Applicant Rule tells certain government contractors how to gather and retain job applications via the Internet. Because of the Rule, many contractors require that applicants use their online systems and not submit paper résumés.

    • OFCCP is the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs, an agency of the United States Department of Labor’s Employment Standards Administration. The OFCCP enforces laws prohibiting employment discrimination by federal contractors.
    • Some employers that are not bound by the Rule do not accept paper résumés simply because they have put their entire application process on the Internet. One great advantage to applicants is that large employers can easily route the online résumés of desirable applicants to the appropriate divisions, offices, plants, etc.
  6. If they won’t take my résumé, shouldn’t I have stayed home and registered online?

    There is great value in the time you spend talking to recruiters, even if you can’t hand them your résumé.

    • You have a great chance to make an outstanding personal impression. A person who presents himself/herself extremely well at a booth may even get an interview for a job opening that is not on the recruiter’s list.
    • You have a chance to learn about the recruiters’ companies and their job opportunities.
    • You have a chance to network with the recruiters. You can ask a recruiter what it’s like to work at his/her company, and how best to navigate the company’s application process. You can ask the recruiter to take down your name and phone number or email address, and ask for his/her business card so that you can follow up.
  7. What if the employers are in industries that don’t interest me?

    An employer’s primary industry or company name does not necessarily indicate what openings the company is trying to fill.

    • A drugstore chain may be recruiting for positions in transportation and distribution.
    • A brewery may be recruiting for jobs in information technology.
  8. What time should I arrive?

    Feel free to try and arrive a little early to get near the front of the registration line, or you can choose to arrive a few hours after the event starts and avoid the crowd.
