The military-to-civilian recruiting firm RecruitMilitary will present a free hiring event for veterans on Thursday, May 7, at the Wings Over the Rockies Air and Space Museum in Denver, CO. This event, the RecruitMilitary Career Fair, will take place from 11 a.m. until 3 p.m. at 7711 East Academy Boulevard – Denver, CO 80230. RecruitMilitary urges all job seekers who have military backgrounds to attend–veterans who already have civilian work experience, men and women who are transitioning from active duty to civilian life, members of the National Guard and reserves, and military spouses.
Veteran-friendly organizations will conduct one-on-one interviews with the job seekers–organizations that will include corporate employers, law-enforcement agencies and other government employers, educational institutions, veterans service agencies, and veterans associations. RecruitMilitary will produce the career fair in cooperation with The American Legion and HireVetsFirst, a unit of the United States Department of Labor.
More than 500 organizations attended 45 RecruitMilitary Career Fairs in 2007. At those events, an average of 30-plus organizations interviewed an average of over 350 job seekers. RecruitMilitary Career Fairs conducted in 2006 and 2007 generated television coverage by CNBC, ABC, CBS, NBC and CNN; radio coverage by ESPN and numerous regional stations; and articles in metropolitan and local newspapers.
