Hope for jobless vets at the upcoming RecruitMilitary Career Fair

The RecruitMilitary Career Fair is coming to the Uptown Theater in Kansas City on Thursday, July 23, according to Karen Galvin of RecruitMilitary, LLC. The event is free for veterans and their spouses, who are invited to interview with national, regional and local employers from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

A list of the companies confirmed to attend so far includes: American College of Technology, Baker University/Apollo Group, Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railway, Centura College, Columbia College, DeVry University, Granthan University, Heritage College, the Internal Revenue Service, Home Depot, Lockheed Martin Corporation, Modern Woodmen of America, Quintiles, Schlumberger Limited, Snapp Fitness, T-Mobile, Northrop Grumman, Troops to Teachers, and the US Census.

What’s with all the colleges? “Most are probably there to inform vets that want to use their Post-9/11 GI Bill benefits about their educational opportunities and programs,” Galvin wrote us in an email. “Some may also be hiring.”

RecruitMilitary.com posts a daily listing of employers seeking veterans for jobs. Today’s open job listings include a Plant Manager Trainee in Animal Nutrition for Cargill and an Industrial Cleaner for Advanced Technology Services. It’s not all cow-feeding and toilet-scrubbing, though. One of yesterday’s listings was from the Henry M. Jackson Foundation seeking a Research/Postdoctoral

Fellow to support the Center for Neuroscience & Regenerative

Medicine in Bethesda, Maryland.

The career fair is sponsored by the President’s National Hire Veterans Committee, The American Legion and the Military Spouse Corporate Career Network.
