RecruitMilitary wants to make sure veterans and active duty military members can find good paying civilian jobs.

The organization is teaming up with Disabled American Veterans to host a job fair at Amalie Arena in downtown Tampa on Thursday, July 20. Hundreds of veterans, military members, guardsmen, reservists and their spouses are expected to attend the event.

"RecruitMilitary job fairs maintain a track record of helping veterans find meaningful employment," said President and CEO Peter Gudmundsson.

Dozens of people who participated in previous RecruitMilitary job fairs in Tampa ended up receiving job offers.

Some recruiters are looking to fill immediate openings while other are searching for candidates for jobs that are not available right now, but will be opening up soon.

It is important to remember an employer’s primary industry or company name does not necessarily indicate what openings they are trying to fill.

Thursday's job fair runs from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. For more information, visit
