DAV & RecruitMilitary hosted the event with 114 companies looking to fill positions.

RecruitMilitary says the veteran unemployment rate for May was 9.1 percent. While it’s getting better, that’s why a virtual job fair is so important. 

Since the start of the pandemic, it has hosted 36 virtual career job fairs.

“Thank god we have we have this type of platform to where it eases some of the frustrations for the whole family unit whether the military member or the military spouse,” says Senior Vice President Chris Stevens, senior vice president at RecruitMilitary and a U.S. Air Force veteran.

RecruitMilitary will continue to host these through the beginning of next year. 

It even hosts some webinars to get veterans and their families comfortable with the technical part so they can maneuver the event.
