Veteran unemployment is on the rise again. While non-veteran unemployment hits hard at4.6%, veteran unemployment trails closely behind at 4.2%. What does this mean? Unemployment runs deep through all demographics. However, one organization is getting veterans to work NOW.
Veterans bring a quality to the civilian workplace that is earned through battle: grit. Conditioned to adapt and respond to change, veteran job candidates are leading the pack in the mission to get the job done and reset the workforce to a thriving capacity.
DAV & RecruitMilitary will host the Jacksonville Veterans Job Fair Thursday November 18th at TIAA Bank Stadium from 11am to 3pm EST. Registration is free and available online to all transitioning military, veterans, military spouses and dependents.
“Our driving purpose is to empower veterans to find meaningful work opportunities in the private sector,” said Tim Best, CEO of RecruitMilitary. “We work with companies throughout the world that see tremendous value in the transferable skills that military trained personnel bring to their organizations. We are pleased to provide these companies with a vast network of highly qualified veteran job candidates looking for meaningful civilian career opportunities.”
