Statistics prove that veteran employment is working for U.S. businesses. The U.S. Department of Labor recently released a monthly report that confirms national veteran unemployment remains at a consistent all-time low of just 3.8%. This data confirms that Pennsylvania employers are actually competing among each other to hire highly trained military talent in the civilian workforce. There is no better time than now to be a veteran looking for a job.
This Thursday, October 18th, DAV and RecruitMilitary will host the Pittsburgh Veterans Job Fair at Heinz Field from 11am to 3pm. This event is sponsored by Highmark Health and will feature 60 Pittsburgh-area employers on-site and ready to hire hundreds of veterans, transitioning military service members and military spouses.
