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 Pittsburgh event was the 52nd RecruitMilitary Opportunity Expo of 74 scheduled in 2010 in 37 cities. The event was successful, with 136 veterans, spouses and family members as well as 45 exhibitors in attendance. The featured veteran-friendly organizations were DeVry University, Military Sealift Command, Snap-On Tools and Transportation Security Administration. Our event director was John Lundberg, a retired Marine and a RecruitMilitary account executive and opportunity expo traveler. The PNC Park staff treated all of the veterans and exhibitors in attendance tremendously well, rolling out the red carpet for all. This was the fourth Opportunity Expo in the Pittsburgh area for RecruitMilitary since 2008.
