“Chris Newsome gave details about the event.”
“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. ”
“FOX 10 (KSAZ) Interviewed John Lundberg prior to the event in Phoenix. The University of Phoenix Stadium, where the Expo was held, was planning on hiring veterans for the Super Bowl 2015. ”
“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”
“ ARIZONA VETERANS FILED INTO UNIVERSITY OF PHOENIX STADIUM TO LAND A JOB WITH VETERAN FRIENDLY EMPLOYERS. THERE WERE JOBS AVAILABLE FOR LOCAL, REGIONAL AND NATIONAL COMPANIES. A CHANCE TO NETWORK WITH SEVERAL OF THEM AND LEARN MORE ABOUT BEING HIRED”
“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. ”
“Thursday event will pair employers, veterans, spouses of veterans.”
“Next week, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and RecruitMilitary are hosting a job fair for Valley veterans and military spouses. The event is free and part of a nationwide campaign to connect veterans and military spouses with employers. The Hiring Our Heroes/RecruitMilitary Veteran Opportunity Expo will be held on Thursday, October 13th, between 11am and 3pm, at University of Phoenix Stadiu...”
“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...”
“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...”
