The expo is a great opportunity to network and learn about companies you otherwise wouldn’t have discovered.
Philadelphia Expo Attendee
I have seen RecruitMilitary take leaps and bounds on the Opportunity Expo, bringing the leading employers in today’s job market. This is the place to be for a veteran who is looking to be recognized for skills and qualities they have received from their experience in the military. This is revolutionary for the servicemen and women transitioning into the civilian sector.

Some of the companies had big/regional managers at the event to talk with you and see if you fit what they were looking for. That says a lot about a business or company.
Philadelphia Expo Attendee
Best job fair to go to! Everybody respects each other. Recruiters approach you. Excellent event. Thank you very much.
Philadelphia Expo Attendee
Having had difficulty finding a job for over a year, it was nice to be among people that realize the struggles I have been enduring and understand them. It was great to be around companies that were willing to look at my resume and not throw it aside because they have no idea what it means to be a military soldier and automatically write off my experience.
Philadelphia Expo Attendee
A step above the rest. Great result, due to excellent marketing.
