“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. ”
“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. ”
“Peter Gudmundsson talked about the availability of jobs for returning service members.”
“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.”
“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 host Bert Martinez interviewed Peter Gudmundsson. Discussed veteran hiring.”
“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. ”
“By Lore Croghan They came, 300 strong, to Manhattan Center Thursday, soldiers and sailors and leathernecks, all in need of a job. For military veterans, it can be a hard battle to get back into the civilian workforce. A job fair just for them, organized by a former Marine Captain, was meant to make their fight a little easier. "I'm a certified sharpshooter - what does that mean to a ci...”
“It is tough enough for veterans to find civilian jobs when they end their military duty. In the current job market, the situation is even worse. On Tuesday, more than 2,000 veterans crowded a Midtown hotel to attend a job fair just for them. For 4 years U.S. Navy technician, Nelson Romero loaded live ammunition into airplanes on a marine amphibious ship. Now, he is looking for a job. Like ma...”
“By Cara Buckley Ample of girth, his scalp gleaming beneath a thinning thatch of hair, Alex De Francis stood out in the small sea of veterans that filled a Midtown hotel ballroom on Thursday. They were all there for a veterans’ job fair, and while many were young, Mr. De Francis was 61. He left the military in 1972, after a tour of duty in Vietnam, before many of his fellow job seekers w...”
“New York-area veterans on the hunt for a new job can get a big leg up today as some 50 corporations, universities and other institutions gather in Midtown to bid for their talents. The RecruitMilitary Opportunity Expo, put on by a recruiting firm in cooperation with veterans' groups like the American Legion, runs from 11 am to 3 pm at the New Yorker Hotel on Eighth Avenue. Obviously, the ...”
“By ANDY SOLTIS Here's where unemployed veterans should be on Thursday -- a jobs "opportunity expo." Vets will get a chance to sell themselves to major firms like Amtrak, New York Life, T-Mobile and Time Warner Cable, as well as government agencies. The expo runs from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the New Yorker Hotel, 481 Eighth Ave. Read more: http://www.nypost.com/p/news/local/manhattan/now_h...”
“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...”
“BY Samantha Strong AND Oren Yaniv Military veterans who traded rifles for resumes flocked to a job fair just for them Thursday - and said their service is more of a barrier than a blessing in the search for employment. "I'm not expecting people to kiss my feet or anything, but I am looking for a chance," said Anthony Ramos, 28, of Baldwin, L.I., who served four years in the Navy until his...”
“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...”
