DAV and RecruitMilitary will host the Dallas Veterans Job Fair this Thursday, Feb. 14, at AT&T Stadium from 11 a.m. to 3.p.m. for veterans, transitioning military personnel and military spouses.

This event features nearly 100 employers and coincides with RecruitMilitary’s recently announced collaboration with Google and its newly designed job search function for military trained talent.

As job seekers prepare to attend the event, transitioning service members and veterans using RecruitMilitary’s job board to preview available job opportunities will experience a refined search that’s powered by Google’s machine learning algorithms and built-in military occupational specialty (MOS) understanding to civilian job matching.

The new search function is key to those veterans or service members who are actively seeking new career opportunities but are unsure of where to begin.

“In early testing of the service, we have seen a more than 13 percent increase in veteran job seekers applying to jobs, and search volume by users is increased by more than 10 percent, the organizations said in a news release.

According to the U.S. Department of Labor’s January report, the rate of veteran unemployment holds steady at an all-time low – currently at 3.7 percent which means military trained talent is in demand by civilian employers, the release said.
