NVTC VEI Hosts Largest Employer Recruiting Event at Ft. Myer on Nov. 2-3
On Nov. 2-3, the NVTC Veterans Employment Initiative (VEI), in partnership with Virginia Values Veterans (V3), hosted the Veteran Employer Transition Summit (VETS) at Fort Myer in Arlington, Va. The event was the largest on-base hiring event to-date for private employers to meet with transitioning Veterans. VEI was selected by the Military District of Washington to run the event.
On Nov. 2, VEI Director Steve Jordon organized a speaker series featuring NVTC member companies and their HR professionals dedicated to supporting and hiring transitioning Veterans. Participating member companies, CyberHC, ICF and IntelliDyne, offered over 300 transitioning Veteran attendees insider knowledge into finding work opportunities, connecting with recruiters and marketing their unique skill sets.
Nov. 3 activities centered around a recruiting event in which 27 NVTC and V3-certified company recruiters connected with over 100 service members in a face-to-face career “speed-dating” setting to match their talents to open job positions.
