“RecruitMilitary, a national military recruiting firm established in 1998, and DAV, a major veteran service organization established in 1920 and serving veterans of all eras, have partnered and are delivering a career fair for military veterans in the San Antonio area. ”
“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”
“ABC 12 (KSAT)"There's not a lot of correlation to when (veterans) enter into the civilian world again of, 'How do I write a resume?'" said Steve Balczo, of RecruitMilitary. "Getting rid of the acronyms that we use in the military, and breaking it down so that the civilian corporations can read a resume and understand the strengths and talents of these veterans."”
“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. ”
“ABC 12 (KSAT) San Antonio - For many veterans, leaving the service and starting a new career in the civilian world can seem daunting.”
Hiring For Heroes job fair tailored for veterans - Hundreds of veterans crowd AT&T Center for job fair
“ABC 12 - The U.S. Chamber of Commerce and Recruit Military held a Hiring For Heroes job fair at the AT&T Center Thursday. The line was out the door as hundred of veterans and their spouses showed up looking for work. ”
Veterans find opportunities at special job fair - Event designed to place local veterans, their spouses
“Hundreds of veterans turned out Thursday at a special job fair designed to pair veterans and their spouses with local companies looking to hire.”
“By Patrick Danner Enrique Alcantara served 12 years in the Marines, including two tours in Iraq, but those credentials can't seem to help him find a job. “I've been applying and sending my résumé everywhere,” said Alcantara, 35, who estimated he's handed out 150 résumés since becoming unemployed in April. Alcantara was among almost 400 military veterans and their spouses who ...”
“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...”
