This is a free hiring event for veterans, transitioning military personnel, National Guard members, Reserve members and military spouses.

RecruitMilitary has held 21 events in Tampa, drawing 8,819 attendees and 846 exhibitors. “Last year, 52% of veteran job seekers expected to secure an interview following a DAV RecruitMilitary job fair.

Employers were expected to extend as many as 40,300 interviews and more than 12,560 job offers,” said RecruitMilitary Senior Vice President of Sales Rob Arndt. “DAV RecruitMilitary job fairs offer the opportunity to meet a variety of veteran candidates face-to-face, assess their skills, and even interview them on the spot for available positions.”
