St. Louis, MO (PRWEB) June 28, 2007 -- RecruitMilitary, LLC, and AAIM Management Association of St. Louis have launched an initiative to promote the hiring of military veterans, military spouses, and other men and women with military backgrounds by the more than 700 companies that are members of AAIM. In their first project, RecruitMilitary and AAIM are providing incentives for AAIM member companies to interview job seekers at a RecruitMilitary Career Fair at Busch Stadium in St. Louis on July 19.
RecruitMilitary, based in Cincinnati, produces career fairs and provides other services to connect employers with job seekers who have military backgrounds. All of the company's services are free to job seekers. All of RecruitMilitary's owners, officers, account executives, and recruiters are either veterans or active or former reservists. The company was founded in 1998.
AAIM Management Association is an employer association in the Greater St. Louis area. AAIM serves its members in the areas of business education, customized organization development, executive coaching, process improvement, customer satisfaction, and human resources -- including consultation regarding job evaluation, incentive plans, benefits, affirmative action, recruiting and staffing, reference checking, insurance, and career transition. AAIM was founded in 1898.
"This partnership will benefit both the job seekers we serve and the member companies served by AAIM Management Association," said Drew Myers, President of RecruitMilitary and a former Captain in the United States Marine Corps. "Job seekers that attend the RecruitMilitary Career Fair will gain access to an outstanding selection of employers. AAIM members attending will meet hundreds of highly motivated job seekers with the skill sets, initiative, self-discipline, and leadership qualities that Corporate America wants and needs."
David Coverstone, AAIM's Vice President, Human Resources Consulting, said, "Our new relationship with RecruitMilitary gives our member companies an outstanding opportunity to augment and upgrade their workforces with men and women who have the needed skills as well as a proven work ethic. And our participation in the RecruitMilitary Career Fair will be a way of saying to the veteran community, 'Welcome, please apply, and thanks for serving our great nation!'"
The St. Louis event will be the 23rd of 45 RecruitMilitary Career Fairs scheduled for 2007. During 14 such events produced from January through May, an average of 30-plus organizations interviewed an average of over 450 job seekers.
Job seekers at RecruitMilitary Career Fairs include veterans who already have civilian work experience, men and women who are transitioning from active duty to civilian life, members of the National Guard and reserves, and military spouses. Interviewers include representatives of corporate employers, law-enforcement agencies and other government employers, educational institutions, veterans service agencies, and veterans associations. RecruitMilitary produces its career fairs in cooperation with The American Legion; HireVetsFirst, a unit of the United States Department of Labor; and the Military Spouse Corporate Career Network (MSCCN).
In addition to participation in career fairs, RecruitMilitary offers subscriptions to its database of self-registered job seekers who have military backgrounds, currently numbering more than 160,000, at its Web site, www.recruitmilitary.com ; advertising in online and print media; and contingency and retained hiring services. The company mails more than 53,000 copies of a quarterly, print newsletter called Incoming! to over 230 military bases throughout the world for distribution to transitioning personnel; employers advertise their job openings in Incoming!
