U.S. Chamber of Commerce, RecruitMilitary Presenting Veteran Hiring Event in Pittsburgh on October 6
The U.S. Chamber of Commerce and the military-to-civilian recruitment firm RecruitMilitary will collaborate on a Hiring Our Heroes/RecruitMilitary Veteran Opportunity Expo, a hiring event for military veterans, in Pittsburgh on October 6.
On March 24, the U.S. Chamber had already launched “Business Steps Up: Hiring Our Heroes,” a year-long effort to help veterans and their spouses find employment by means of veteran hiring events. The U.S. Chamber has scheduled more than 100 Hiring Our Heroes events across the nation through March 2012.
RecruitMilitary will produce 11 additional Hiring Our Heroes/RecruitMilitary Veteran Opportunity Expos in 2011—on October 13 in Phoenix, October 20 in Atlanta and Kansas City, October 27 in Jacksonville, November 3 in Philadelphia and Seattle/Tacoma, November 10 in Dallas, November 17 in Charlotte and Norfolk, December 1 in San Diego, and December 8 in Houston.
To maximize the number of employers participating in those events as well as the 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.
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.
