Career Fair Testimonials

It was a very good mix of employers, and the ones that were there seemed to be genuinely engaged in the process and actually committed to connecting veterans with jobs vs simply "throw your resume in the box and we'll call you if anything comes up" which I have seen elsewhere.

This event is one of the best. RecruitMilitary is one of the only organizations that I recommend to other companies for career expos.
