National unemployment claims have surpassed historic measures and veteran unemployment stays in step with this trend surging by 8 percent in just four weeks, from 3.8 percent in March to 11.8 percent in April. The good news: there are organizations hiring this specific demographic with identified military-trained skill sets and they need to fill jobs now. Industries such as distribution, supply chain, logistics, e-commerce, data storage/broadband, pharmaceuticals, select retail are just a few of the areas of business that are rapidly hiring and in large volume.
To facilitate employment efforts for both job seekers and employers, DAV & RecruitMilitary will host the Atlanta Virtual Career Fair for Veterans on Thursday, June 25 from 11 am to 3 pm ET 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. Video of a virtual tour of the hiring event is available.
Bradley-Morris/RecruitMilitary, a company built on a storied history of military trained talent and leadership, has been employing and recruiting veterans for nearly three decades. In response to COVID-19, the organization swiftly implemented virtual hiring events nationwide in just a matter of days. And today, the company is positioned to bring thousands of service members, veterans and military spouses into the civilian workforce more than ever before. In April, Bradley-Morris/RecruitMilitary was appointed by the U.S. Army to provide all transition services to soldiers, veterans and their families.
The timing of this appointment is critical to serve the needs of transitioning soldiers and their families who are leaving the military and joining the civilian world amidst a global crisis. Bradley-Morris/RecruitMilitary also serves veterans and transitioning service members of ALL branches.
