Our organization has participated in several RecruitMilitary events in San Diego, and they have been well organized and the quality of the participants has been very good.

Without question the RecruitMilitary events are by far the most engaged and targeted events a firm can attend.
Recruiter, Education Industry, past San Diego Exhibitor
It was the most organized, efficient, well spaced, easily accessible event I’ve been to in 6 months.
HR Manager, Pharmaceutical Industry, past San Diego exhibitor
Given the success we have had in the past at various RecruitMilitary career fairs across the country, our expectations have been set high for any events we decide to attend. And in typical fashion, the most recent RecruitMilitary event we attended ended up exceeding our expectations in every way, and then some.
Recruiter, past San Diego Exhibitor
I was very impressed with the event and the marketing before hand. I am looking forward to future events with RecruitMilitary.
Recruiter, Defense & Aerospace Industry, past San Diego Exhibitor
Great way to get face to face time with recruiters. Very professional staff as well.
Air Force Veteran - E5, past San Diego attendee
Attending the RecruitMilitary Opportunity Expo opened my eyes to many new opportunities that I did not realize I qualified for. I stood beside a Navy captain that was amazed that a certain employer was looking for someone like him. Shortly after that one of my junior sailors set up 2 interviews. They had something for everyone.
Navy Vetera - E6, past San Diego attendee
Make sure to talk to all of the vendors. I found opportunities were I didn’t expect them.
Marine Veteran, E-8, past San Diego Attendee
You will be pleasantly surprised by the opportunities you will be exposed to. The represented employers are serious about hiring
