Despite overwhelming worldwide challenges this year, military and veteran job seekers continue to persevere in their search for a fulfilling civilian career. Unemployment trends are headed in the right direction and veteran unemployment stays in step dropping to 5.9% in October from 6.8% the previous two months. There’s more good news:

·Organizations are actively hiring this specific demographic with identified military-trained skill sets and they need to fill jobs NOW.

·Industries such as manufacturing, supply chain, logistics, IT, emergency services and transportation are just a few of the areas of business that are rapidly hiring veterans and in large volume.   


Leading transitioning military, veterans and military spouses back to work, DAV & RecruitMilitary will host the Eastern Region Virtual Career Fair on Tuesday, December 15th from 11am to 3pm Eastern Time online. This free virtual event is open to ALL members of the military community, past and present, as well as military spouses and dependents. RecruitMilitary’s virtual events are technologically enhanced to provide personal interaction among job candidates and employers in large group, small group and one-one-one formats. To view a tour of the virtual event format, visit here.


“We’ve seen a ripple effect over the past few years of organizations across the country prioritizing diversity and veteran hiring because they see the value of bringing this type of talent to shape the future of their organization,” said Tim Best, RecruitMilitary CEO and former U.S. Army special operations attack helicopter pilot. “Companies realize that having their employees and leaders be representative of our nation’s wonderfully diverse population is critical to their success.  And, they’ve discovered they can find that diversity, along with unmatched tangible skills and intangible attributes in the veteran population.  Military-trained job seekers are an unmatched asset to any employer seeking diversity and hiring solutions with the most highly skilled and qualified workers in the country.”


I’d like to connect you with Senior Vice President Chris Stevens, who is also a U.S. Air Force veteran, to discuss exactly how this Virtual Career Fair is sustaining the need for employment exploration and job security for these transitioning military service members, military spouses and veterans.  Event details are included below.
