When you leave the military, the biggest question is "what's next?" It's a scary job market right now, but the skills you've received in the military make you highly marketable. The Legion sponsors dozens of veterans hiring fairs each year, and our employment experts also provide tips to writing resumes, networking and making a strong impression in the interview process.
The Nashville event was the 46th RecruitMilitary Opportunity Expo of 74 scheduled in 2010 in 37 cities. The event was highly successful, with 219 veterans, spouses and family members as well as 28 exhibitors in attendance. The Featured Veteran-Friendly Organizations were DeVry University, Snap-On Tools, and T-Mobile. The American Legion was in attendance as well as a proud partner in sponsoring the event in conjunction with the organization’s Heroes to Hometowns program. The event director was John Lundberg, a retired Marine and a RecruitMilitary account executive and Opportunity Expo Traveler. The LP Field staff treated all of the veterans and exhibitors in attendance tremendously well, rolling out the red carpet for all. This was the eighth Opportunity Expo in the Nashville area for RecruitMilitary since 2007.
