Milicruit and Hire Heroes USA has partnered to offer a free virtual career fair exclusively for veterans. With the Milicruit fully interactive virtual technology, veterans and employers can meet online without the need or expense of travel.
The Inaugural event will take place on April 29th, and will include up to 75 industry leading employers such as Verizon, Comerica, US Navy, Wellpoint, Target, Ryder, Stryker and dozens more.
"With over 500,000 veterans between the ages of 18 and 64 unemployed according to the bureau of Labor Statistics http://www.bls.gov and with over 20,000 soldiers leaving active duty each month, we felt compelled to build a first class virtual career fair environment that would give more access to more employers to our veteran community. Many of our veterans have spent years in battle and they should not have to fight for a civilian job when they return,” says Kevin O’Brien CEO, Milicruit
The event is limited to 75 employers and will provide an opportunity for both veteran and employer to communicate as if in person. Participating employers can:
- Have a customized booth that matches corporate colors
- Video greeting as the veteran enters
- Upload all available job
- Chat with the veteran
- Even video interview
This type of 21st Century readiness will better prepare our transitioning warriors as they embark upon a new career path towards Corporate America. In addition, this platform will have the ability to reach those who have been severely wounded and are looking to connect with multiple employers.
Veterans wishing to attend the event should register at http://milicruit.com/registration.html
Registration and participation is free for veterans. In the Milicruit event, you will have the ability to:
- Visit Employer booths
- View job postings
- Submit resume
- View employer videos/presentations

- Video interview
The best part about the Milicruit service is veterans can attend from the comfort and convenience of home, and at a time that is most convenient for them.
