PHILADELPHIA, Nov. 15, 2016 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Veteran Recruiting (VR), the leading virtual career fair provider for the military community, announced today the launch of the Veteran Recruitment Center (VRC). The VRC expands on the success of the multi-company virtual career fairs VR has hosted since 2009 that has helped more than 172,000 veterans find employment.
"VRC is the next step in making it easier, faster, and more affordable to connect veterans with employers who match their skills, training, experience, education, and geographical preference. While the multi-company virtual career fairs are a great way to explore opportunities with a wide range of companies, VRC will focus more on single company recruiting events that are based on what the veteran has expressed an interest in, and in the markets, they desire to reside in after service." Stated Kevin O'Brien, Partner, Veteran Recruiting.
The Veteran Recruitment Center will enable company recruiters to host virtual career fairs, open houses, chat sessions, or webinars whenever is convenient for them, and veterans will be emailed event reminders based on the information they provide when they register on the Veteran Recruiting website.
Key Benefits of the Veteran Recruitment Center:
1. Veterans can connect in real-time with company recruiters from anywhere they are located
2. Transitioning service members can explore civilian opportunities nationwide
3. Companies can host recruiting events at their convenience
4. Companies save time, money, and resources typically needed for a national military recruiting strategy
"Verizon has benefited greatly from the virtual career fairs hosted by Veteran Recruiting, and we continue to see them as a valuable tool in our military recruiting strategies. The Veteran Recruitment Center will make it easier to showcase Verizon to the military community, and help to match veterans & military spouses with jobs available based on the information they provide in the VRC" Said Evan Guzman, Global Head of Military Programs & Veterans Affairs, Verizon.
