More than 400 veterans are expected to attend and network with veteran-friendly employers. There will be national, regional and local job opportunities, as well as entrepreneurial and educational offerings.
RecruitMilitary job fairs maintain a track record of helping veterans find meaningful employment,’ said President and CEO Peter Gudmundsson. ‘Just last year, 56.3% of veteran job seekers expected to secure an interview as a result of their participation in a RecruitMilitary job fair and employers were expected to extend as many as 38,700 interviews and more than 12,000 job offers.’
In November of 2015, the DAV-RecruitMilitary Seattle event connected more than 350 veteran job seekers with 49 exhibitors, including Lockheed Martin and Apple, Inc. Participating companies expected to conduct up to 184 interviews and make up to 61 job offers as a result of that career fair.
RecruitMilitary has produced veteran job fairs since 2006 and has held 20 events in Seattle, drawing 6,692 attendees and 743 exhibitors. The company has produced more than 814 events in 65 cities across the country. RecruitMilitary will return to the Seattle/Tacoma area to host an additional veteran career fair in November.
DAV was founded by World War I veterans in Cincinnati in 1920 and chartered by the United States Congress in 1932. DAV (www.dav.org) is a non-profit organization with 1.2 million members.
DAV and RecruitMilitary share a common mission: to connect America’s veterans and their family members with meaningful and fulfilling employment opportunities, and to help employers attract, appreciate and retain veterans, spouses, and their survivors. Through career fairs, outreach and resources, this partnership fights to ensure veterans receive the benefits they’ve earned and are empowered to lead productive, dignified and high-quality lives that their service has made possible.
