What do veterans bring to America’s employers? According to a joint study conducted by USAA and SHRM Foundation, an overwhelming 94% of employers say that hiring veteran workers is appealing to their organization due to their intangible skills with a mission-first mindset rooted in leadership, discipline, teamwork, selflessness and service.
Not only do veterans bring unmatched skills and work experience to America’s labor market, they also prove to be worthy investments in human capital by maintaining historically low unemployment rates among all demographics at just 2.7%. Recruiting is competitive, but retention is high. Why? Because military trained employees are loyal and mission focused, never quitting until the job is done.
RecruitMilitary and DAV will help veterans and their families by connecting them with employers seeking their military trained talent. The Greater Los Angeles Veterans Job Fair will be held this Thursday, August 11, from 11am to 3pm PT at the Long Beach Convention Center. Over 40 of the nation’s top employers will be in attendance, ready to network with the Greater LA military community. Registration is free and available online to all transitioning military, veterans, military spouses, and dependents.
The Job Fair will take place in the Promenade Ballroom located on the Promenade level of the center. Enter the Convention Center at the Main Entrance off of Pine Ave. Long Beach Convention and Entertainment Center is located at 300 E. Ocean Boulevard in Long Beach.
