Employers step up to the plate for veterans at Turner Field

Almost everyone agrees that the men and women in uniform deserve our support while they’re serving in the U.S. military. But what about when those folks are transitioning from the military to a civilian life?

The people at RecruitMilitary LLC, want to help. The Cincinnati-based organization – along with The American Legion, Purple Heart Services and the Military Spouse Corporate Career Network – is producing the RecruitMilitary Opportunity Expo, which will be at Atlanta’s Turner Field on Feb. 24 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

The free event is an opportunity for military veterans and their spouses to interview and network with more than 30 veteran-friendly employers and educational institutions. Among those scheduled to attend the expo are Accenture, AutoNation, Aviation Institute of Maintenance, Columbia Southern University, Combined Insurance, DeVry University, First Command Financial Services, The Geo Group, Grand Canyon University, Homeland Security Solutions, HouseMaster Home Inspections, ICDC College, Lowe’s Companies Inc., Military Sealift Command, Service Express, SGS North America, 6th Marine Corps District Prior Service Recruiting, Strayer University, T-Mobile, The Art Institutes and UEI College, according to RecruitMilitary. For information about the event, go to www.recruitmilitary.com.

Are you a military veteran? Did you have problems transitioning to the civilian job market or were you treated with the respect you deserved?
