More than 1,300 veterans have registered to attend the veteran hiring event in Washington. Fifty-five companies, educational institutions, and franchisors will be present to interview and network with the veterans.
“We have partnered with The Sierra Group Foundation since 2007 to assist them in their mission. The results have been rewarding for both of our organizations, and ultimately the veterans we serve. This partnership has enabled RecruitMilitary to help another organization while we help our veterans; it’s a win-win for everyone,” said Slagel.
The One More Way award acknowledges RecruitMilitary’
“The work The Sierra Group Foundation does with disabled veterans takes our offerings to the next level. We provide the tools; they provide hands-on, high-touch, high-interaction service to our veterans. With their dedication and care, hundreds of veterans have made employer connections that some veterans may not have had the capability to do on their own. We are proud to partner with them in this important way,” said Slagel.
