Spurred by employers’ increased demand for skilled and educated former military personnel and veterans, MilitaryStars, the nation’s premier military career expo company, is set to host its Eastern Regional Career Expo in Washington, DC on January 11, 2006.
“The word is out: veterans dramatically increase the talent pool of employers,” said MilitaryStars CEO Hal Fischer, adding, “Our career expos connect employers with over 1,000 pre-screened candidates; our results show that one out of every two candidates has the exact skills and background that employers attending our events are looking for. This leads to our military veterans finding top-notch jobs in which they will excel, as well as an incredible ROI on employer investment.”
The East Coast Career Expo is MilitaryStars’ first event of 2006, and it comes at a time when “job availability for military-related occupations rose in 24 local markets . . . indicating higher demand for workers in the aerospace and defense industries . . . [and] opportunities for protective service workers also increased, reflecting higher demand for workers in homeland security functions (airports, ports, and nuclear power plants) and greater investments in IT/network security,” according to a recent Monster Worldwide Employment Index report, and the companies registered to attend the MilitaryStars event indicate this as well.
Employers – ranging from defense contractors and technology companies like KBR, Lockheed Martin, Military Sealift Command and BAE Systems North America, to government agencies like the FBI and US Nuclear Regulatory Commission – will be attending the target-rich recruiting environment that the MilitaryStars Career Expo comprises.
“For a company whose sole mission is to promote the value of veterans and to create opportunities for the men and women who’ve served, we couldn’t be prouder that employers on the East Coast are realizing that the veteran demographic has the skills these companies need to succeed,” said Fischer.
MilitaryStars, a veteran-owned military hiring event company, furthers its mission to assist transitioning military and veterans in finding civilian jobs via regional career expos throughout the United States.
