"Veterans have always played a crucial role throughout the history of our country and they bring a unique skill set to civilian jobs which allows them to perform at the highest level," said Kate Spellman, President of UBM Studios. "Given the number of veterans currently looking to reenter civilian life and the industry-leading employers seeking to hire veteran talent, our virtual career fairs bring job seekers and recruiters together virtually efficiently and effectively."
The Milicruit virtual job fair is accessible to active duty, guard/reservists, veterans and military spouses. The website to register is www.veteranscareerfair.com. In addition to the monthly virtual career fairs, job seekers can search for all available positions in the jobs center by location, job title, keyword and military occupation specialty or code.
In March of this year, Milicruit and their employer partners launched the 10,000 Jobs for Veterans and Military Spouses Challenge. The goal was to find jobs for at least 10,000 veterans and military spouses by the end of 2013, and in just six months, the employers have already hired more than 8,075 veterans and military spouses.
