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 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.

Veterans job fair coming to Nissan Stadium

“RecruitMilitary, which has hosted 19 events in Nashville, will host another job fair Feb. 9. Previous events here have attracted more than 6,000 attendees and nearly 600 exhibitors, according to a press release.”

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. ”

Job fair for veterans being held at LP Field today

“NBC 4 (WSMV) Nashville - The Hiring Our Heroes event will host 28 companies looking for new employees. Businesses scheduled to attend include Amazon, Verizon, insurance companies and several colleges. ”

Job fair helps provide Smooth Takeoff

“Ft. Campbell Courier - Veterans, service members preparing to leave the U.S. Armed Forces and many military Family members are looking for a Smooth Takeoff, something that will help them transition into the civilian job sector. One opportunity for a Smooth Takeoff is coming to Nashville from 11 a.m. until 3 p.m. Jan. 24 at L.P. Field.”

Career fair offers opportunities for returning vets

“By Juanita Cousins A group of Nashvillians that often struggles with the transition from Humvees and rifles to sedans and pens may receive a boost this week. The Nashville RecruitMilitary Veteran Opportunity Expo takes place tomorrow at LP Field. Five hundred veterans and military service members and their family members are expected to gather for the career fair designed to match them w...”

Veterans have harder time finding jobs: Job training, other programs are available

“By Getahn Ward America's military veterans may rate as heroes willing to put their lives on the line during wartime, but at home they face a higher-than-average unemployment rate and a tough time transferring the skills they learn in the service to the private sector. And with more veterans seeking jobs after returning from wars in Iraq and Afghanistan — and federal government efforts t...”

Nashville jobless numbers improve - 52 Tennessee counties see gains in December

“By Randy McClain A job fair for men and women with military backgrounds hosted by RecruitMilitary LLC. was held Thursday afternoon at LP Field, near downtown Nashville, on Thursday. Unemployment figures for December show that in the Nashville metropolitan area, roughly 3,500 more people had jobs in December than a month earlier. Gains were slight in December, but at least the jobless num...”

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...”

My wife and I spoke with a wide variety of exhibitors/recruiters; all took time to understand our backgrounds and goals, then explained how they could help us. We value this consultative approach and were very pleased.
