Milicruit in cooperation with the VA will be hosting a fully interactive 3 dimensional career fair for the veteran community on April 29th 2010. Unlike traditional career fairs that require travel, and are limited to 1 location for 1 day, the Milicruit event is accessible 24/7 for an entire 30 days from anywhere an attendee has computer access. We want to make as many veterans aware of this great new service, and could really use the help and support of the DOL. It is 100% free for veterans to register and attend, and they will have the opportunity to, visit employer booths, view videos, presentations, view and apply for jobs, chat with employer reps, and even video interview. All from the comfort and convenience of home. Employers already signed on to participate include, Verizon, GE, Ryder, Target, 3M, Booz Allen, NavAir, Navy Cyberforces, Comerica, Capital One, Wellpoint, Medco, Stryker, TCF Bank, Navy Exchange, Waste Management, CACI and several more.

This event will surely assist in helping with the growing unemployment rate amongst our veterans, but will prove even more beneficial to those who may disabled or who have been injured while serving given it requires no travel at all to participate. This will also be a great way for the DOL to demonstrate it’s willingness to embrace new technology that can help put our veterans back to work. They have fought long and hard enough protecting our way of life, and should not have to battle for a job when they return.

I am attaching a flyer that could be distributed via email to your Units and FRG via email, and would appreciate any/all assistance you could provide in getting the word out. The more veterans/soldiers we have signed up, the more employers we can attract.

Best Regards
