RecruitMilitary, the nation’s leading full-service veteran recruitment company, and DAV, Disabled American Veterans, the nation’s premier veterans service organization, have formed a partnership to promote the hiring of veterans.
“All of us at RecruitMilitary are delighted to have the opportunity to work with the fine organization that is DAV,” said Peter A. Gudmundsson, president and CEO of RecruitMilitary and a former officer in the United States Marine Corps. “This partnership brings together two organizations that are leading the way in veteran services. DAV is well known for its strong advocacy of veterans’ causes. RecruitMilitary helps employers excel by attracting, hiring, appreciating, and retaining America’s best talent – its veterans.”
“As our nation winds down from more than 12 years of war, more veterans will be looking for employment as they make the all-important transition out of uniform,” said Barry Jesinoski, Executive Director of DAV National Headquarters. “These highly and technically trained men and women come to the table with a huge range of qualifications and a rock solid work ethic and we’re excited to join forces with RecruitMilitary to empower our nation’s veterans to find jobs.
“Hiring veterans is the right thing to do for businesses and America’s heroes. This partnership will provide hiring opportunities for thousands of veterans in addition to making them aware of other benefits and free services we offer,” he said.
RecruitMilitary and DAV are joining forces to positively impact veteran hiring through:
- More than 65 DAV RecruitMilitary All Veteran Career Fairs will be held annually in more than 35 cities to assist all those who have served and their spouses.
