“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.”
“Veterans come together at Lincoln Financial Field hoping to chart the next step in their lives — post-military service. They had the chance to connect with 64 employers looking to hire. For Catie Hughes who served in the Navy, its not easy being unemployed after a long career in real estate, and having to go to a career fair for a job. ”
“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. ”
“A “Hire Our Heroes” job fair was being held today at Lincoln Financial Field in South Philadelphia, designed to help US military veterans find employment.”
“NBC10's Tracy Davidson is at Lincoln Financial Field where a job fair is being held to help veterans with gaining employment opportunities.”
““A veteran doesn’t know how to talk to the companies, and the companies don’t know how to talk to the veterans, and neither one knows how to find each other in a constructive matching mechanism.” ”
“The event was hosted by RecruitMilitary.com at Lincoln Financial Field. And even though the job market is tough, some companies were welcoming vets with open arms. ”
“By Steve Tawa Military veterans got some leads on jobs today during a “Recruit Military” expo at Lincoln Financial Field. There were about 40 veteran-friendly employers with local, regional and national opportunities, according to Recruit Military Chief Operating Officer Matt Murphy, “What Recruit Military does is connect corporate America with veterans.” He said it’s not onl...”

"I've been looking for any job." A congressional hea...”
“By Lisa Thomas-Laury Hundreds of veterans turned out for a huge job fair at Citizens Bank Park in South Philadelphia on Thursday. The turnout for the Recruit Military Opportunity Expo just underscores the problem for veterans who are looking for employment. "It's been very difficult finding employment. The economic climate is a lot worse than I thought it was," said Lamont Barlowe who,...”
“By Steve Tawa Military veterans from around the region were at the Phillies' ballpark on Thursday. There's no baseball yet, though. It was a job fair dedicated to former members of the armed services. When they entered Citizens Bank Park, attendees picked up a copy of the exhibitors' list. Reviewing the ads in the "Search & Employ" section gave them an idea of some of the positions th...”
