Tulsa Veterans Job Fair

This event took place on April 13, 2017 at Cox Business Center in Tulsa, OK.

Job fair hoping to hire America's heroes

“TULSA, Okla. -- America's heroes for hire met dozens of employers ready to hire them Thursday. It was all part of one of Tulsa's biggest veteran job fairs that 2 Works for You and our parent company, Scripps, proudly sponsored.”


“TULSA - Thursday, the DAV and RecruitMilitary will hold a job fair in Tulsa designed to help veterans, military spouses, reservists and guardsmen find careers. ”

Veterans local job fair announced

“RecruitMilitary.com is excited to produce an inaugural local veteran recruiting event upcoming in Tulsa April 13 from 11:00 am to 3:00 pm in the Cox Business Center.”

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. ”

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.
