Payment Information

Additional Representatives Policy

Your booth purchase includes representatives. The attendance of any additional representatives will require a $50 fee per additional representative which will allow us to provide the appropriate accommodations for the number of recruiters that attend the event on behalf of your organization. If your organization has any additional representatives show up on the day of the event without paying the fee in advance, you will be invoiced $50 for each representative, on the day of the event.

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.

Pittsburgh Veterans Job Fair Coming To Heinz Field

“ Joe Bertagna and Brian Hankinson stop by to talk about an upcoming job fair specifically tailored to military veterans.”

All Veterans Career Fair aims to connect employers and job seekers

“PITTSBURGH —Making the transition from military service to civilian life is not easy. And unemployment for veterans can be a stressor for the men and women who have served their country so courageously. Now, companies like RecruitMilitary are working to connect employers and educational institutions with job seekers with military backgrounds.”

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. ”

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...”

Job Fair Helps Veterans Connect With Employers

“Mary Robb Jackson Reporting: A day-long job expo is drawing nearly 400 veterans to Heinz Field. They are all ages and from all eras. They are here for many reasons, according to John Lundberg of RecruitMilitary. "I think we have a lot of people here that may already be employed. Maybe they're just looking for something a little bit better. Maybe there'll a little nervous about where they'...”

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...”

Pittsburgh Career Fair -- National Guard O-3
Felt like I got special treatment for being a veteran!
Pittsburgh Career Fair -- Marine E-5
More satisfied by the quality of candidates at this event than any other event I have attended! The amount of candidates and the quality were excellent! Overall great experience!
10/20/16 Pittsburgh Career Fair -- Staffing Recruiter
Very successful. Great venue with plenty of space and all needed amenities. Always well organized and executed. Top notch. Great support to employers and great pool of candidates.
10/20/16 Pittsburg Career Fair -- Financial Services Recruiter
I have been to a lot of these career fairs and I can say by far this one was the best!!
10/20/16 Pittsburg Career Fair -- Army E-4
Some impressive companies were present. I interpret their presence as proof that they understand the value of hiring veterans who have the discipline and character they need.
10/20/16 Pittsburg Career Fair -- Navy E-5
The best thing about the fair was the ability to network with companies and people that you would not normally be able to approach. Sending applications through the internet without personal contacts is not a strategy for success. I am very thankful to have been a part of this career fair and to be given this opportunity.
3/23/17 Pittsburgh Career Fair -- Army W-3
Great venue, great support, great candidate pool. Definitely among the best. As both a veteran and a corporate hiring manager, I see RecruitMilitary events through multiple perspectives. Great companies hungry to attract outstanding talent, a large pool of well prepared candidates, and a fantastic support staff putting it all together.
3/23/17 Pittsburgh Career Fair -- Financial Services Recruiter
Very good experience with this event. Better than most general job fairs. Excellent candidates.
3/23/17 Pittsburgh Career Fair -- Manufacturing Recruiter
I received 3 offers in 3 different fields. I am elated that I went to the DAV RecruitMilitary career fair!
