Cincinnati, OH—Cincinnati’s hometown hero organizations, DAV and RecruitMilitary, will host the Cincinnati Veterans Job Fair tomorrow, Thursday, September 12th from 11 am to 3 pm at Great American Ballpark. This free event for veterans, military spouses, transitioning military, National Guard members and Reservists features nearly 50 employers ready to hire.
In addition to providing career opportunities for transitioning military and veterans, RecruitMilitary is also focusing efforts on the more than 600,000 military spouses in the United States who are unemployed and/or underemployed in their professional careers. The company is actively working to help address the exorbitantly high unemployment rate of military spouses – nearly 25% – a rate more than six times the national average. This is the highest unemployment rate of any singular group in the U.S. Through its partnership with Google, a new job search tool is now available to assist military spouse and military-trained talent to explore 8,000 remote work options in the RecruitMilitary database of more than 250,000 jobs. With more than 140 veteran and military spouse job fairs this year, RecruitMilitary offers veterans and military spouses the most opportunities of any organization to help facilitate their future career goals.
To further support the transition process of our military service members, Cincinnati’s RecruitMilitary recently launched a program created by veterans and military spouses for veterans and military spouses: Team Transition. The Team Transition program is the first program designed to fully support the family members of service members through career networking opportunities and resources. As service members complete their missions and prepare to transition to civilian employment, it is important to remember that the military family unit is the foundation of the service member’s success. Team Transition provides resources to help military spouses and dependents secure employment, explore career opportunities and enhance educational and licensing initiatives to secure stability as the foundation of the military family.
RecruitMilitary’s Event Director Adam O’Toole, who is also a Cincinnati native and U.S. Army veteran, is available to discuss tomorrow’s hiring event and how we’re helping Cincinnati’s veterans, transitioning military and military spouses find meaningful career opportunities.
