(PRWEB) May 20, 2008
Lucas Group, an executive recruitment search firm, announced upcoming Military Hiring Conferences for the month of June in Washington, DC; Chicago, IL; San Diego, CA and Norfolk, VA. The conference dates are:
16-17 – Washington, DC
19-20 – Chicago, IL
19-20 – San Diego, CA
23-24 – Norfolk, VA
Lucas Group’s Military Hiring Conferences are avenues for companies seeking former military as part of their hiring initiatives. These are invitation-only events that give progressive companies an opportunity to proactively interview the U.S. Military’s best leaders. Candidates are rigorously pre-screened and hand-selected for each company they meet. Military members leaving service are natural leaders with proven capabilities, experience and dedication.
"We have noticed a generally upward trend in starting salaries for our military candidates over the past year," reported Bryan Zawikowski, Vice President of Lucas Group's Military Transition Division. "This is not surprising, because even as the unemployment rate increases slightly, corporations are competing for the best leadership talent. Succession planning and leadership development are topics that are on the executive radar screen now more than ever, as companies prepare to do more with less in the days ahead," added Zawikowski.
Lucas Group pioneered the Military Hiring Conference forum and has conducted them for over 38 years in cities across the country. The search firm screens more than 10,000 military service members annually to identify and place the best and brightest junior military officers (JMOs) and senior military officers (SMOs) into leadership and technical positions across all major industries.
