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.”

The four myths and opportunities of hiring veterans today

“In an era when “support our troops” bumper stickers are common and billboards and radio advertisements abound with rallying calls to give veterans a job, it is not surprising that many employers are overwhelmed and confused. Good intentions permeate most efforts to employ veterans at the national, state and local levels.”

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”

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.

Exhibitor Registration
I obtained several opportunities for positions that I would not known about if I hadn’t attended the RecruitMilitary Expo.
Miami Expo Attendee
The RecruitMilitary job fair was very organized. We found qualified candidates for our open positions. We look forward to attending/participating in future fairs.
HR Manager, Service Industry, past Miami Exhibitor
The event is a great way for us to find prospective candidates with strong leadership skills, strong commitment/dependability, and a positive personality.
HR Manager, Retail Industry, past Miami Exhibitor
Its truly refreshing to see that there are organizations out there that promote the fact that they have the veteran’s back.
Army Veteran - E-7, past Miami Attendee
Great opportunity to meet potential employers. It is best to speak to EVERY booth because you never know what opportunity will be available or who will be interested in passing your resume along. Also be sure to bring a resume.
Military spouse, past Miami attendee
I was very pleased with the expo. I got some pretty good feedback from the vendors. Thanks for much for having such a thing for those who served our great country.
Army veteran - E-4, past Miami attendee
The career fair was well coordinated. Great candidate pool -- diverse, professional and eager.
Recruiter, Logistics Industry, August 2013 Miami 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

Healthcare recruiter, 3/27/2014 Houston Career Fair
So many qualified candidates for our hardest to fill positions.
Environmental Services Recruiter -- 2/27/14 Miami Career Fair
Very well organized. I landed one firm interview and am waiting on a second.
2/27/14 Miami Career Fair -- USCG E-6
I received a job that very day!
1/30/14 OKC Career Fair -- Army E-6
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.
