The unemployment rate for veterans is more than double what it was at this time last year thanks to COVID-19. But a virtual career fair this week aims to help alleviate that problem.

Next week, DAV & RecruitMilitary will host the Tampa Virtual Career Fair for Veterans on Thursday, January 21 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. EST online.

This free virtual event is open to ALL members of the military community, past and present, as well as military spouses and dependents.

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.

RecruitMilitary’s virtual events are technologically enhanced to provide personal interaction among job candidates and employers in large group, small group and one-one-one formats, the organization says. To view a tour of the virtual event format, visit here.
