U.S. Chamber of Commerce and RecruitMilitary, LLC To Collaborate on 2011 Veteran Hiring Events
The United States Chamber of Commerce (the “U.S. Chamber”) and RecruitMilitary, LLC, are pleased to announce that they have joined together to produce 13 career fair hiring events for our nation’s veterans and their spouses.
These events will benefit veterans and military spouses who are looking for jobs and businesses that want to hire great employees. To increase the number of employers participating in these events and maximize job opportunities for veterans and military spouses, RecruitMilitary is offering companies that are members of the U.S. Chamber and local chambers a 10% discount on the cost of their exhibition booths. Additionally, RecruitMilitary will offer further price reductions for small businesses (businesses that have less than 50 employees), and even lower rates for veteran-owned small businesses.
“We are pleased to partner with the U.S. Chamber in this initiative,”
“The Chamber started the Hiring our Heroes initiative because many of our members—which include thousands of small, medium, and large businesses—want to hire veterans and military spouses,” said Kevin Schmiegel, Vice President of Veterans Employment Programs at the U.S. Chamber and a retired Marine Lieutenant Colonel. “Even with high unemployment, we have a huge skills gap in America that is hindering our recovery. Veterans can help fill that gap because they have unique leadership experience and advanced technical expertise.”
The U.S. Chamber (http://www.uschamber.com) is the world’s largest business federation representing the interests of more than 3 million businesses of all sizes, sectors, and regions, as well as state and local chambers and industry associations. The Chamber’s mission is "to advance human progress through an economic, political, and social system based on individual freedom, incentive, initiative, opportunity, and responsibility.”
RecruitMilitary, based in Loveland, Ohio (Greater Cincinnati), was founded in 1998, and is a member of the Loveland Area Chamber of Commerce, the Cincinnati USA Regional Chamber, and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. All of the company’s owners, officers, senior account executives, and recruiters have served in the U.S. armed forces.
