GALION — Unemployment continues to hold steady at record highs and veteran unemployment stays in step with this trend surging to 9 percent from just 3 percent at this time last year. The good news: there are organizations hiring this specific demographic with identified military-trained skill sets and they need to fill jobs NOW. Industries such as distribution, supply chain, logistics, e-commerce, data storage/broadband, pharmaceuticals, select retail are just a few of the areas of business that are rapidly hiring and in large volume.

To get transitioning military, veterans and military spouses back to work, DAV & RecruitMilitary will host the Ohio Virtual Career Fair for Veterans on Sept. 3 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. EST online.

Bradley-Morris/RecruitMilitary, a company built on a storied history of military trained talent and leadership, has been employing and recruiting veterans for nearly three decades. In response to COVID-19, the organization swiftly implemented virtual hiring events nationwide in just a matter of days. And today, the company is positioned to bring thousands of service members, veterans and military spouses into the civilian workforce more than ever before. In April, Bradley-Morris/RecruitMilitary was appointed by the U.S. Army to provide all transition services to soldiers, veterans and their families. The timing of this appointment is critical to serve the needs of transitioning soldiers and their families who are leaving the military and joining the civilian world amidst a global crisis.
