TULSA, Okla. — On Wednesday, the United States honors U.S. Veterans, and the lives lost for all they have done to protect and serve our country.

According to the United States Department of Labor, veteran unemployment sunk to about 3 percent in Spring 2020. Recruit Military helps veterans, their spouses, people in the reserve, or national guard find jobs to put the skills they learned in the military to use.

2 Works for You sat down with Senior Vice President Chris Stevens. Stevens said Recruit Military's job fairs used to be held in-person, however due to COVID-19, they have gone digital.

Now, they hold virtual job fairs with companies from all across the country, twice a week. Stevens said the job fairs include a variety of companies looking to hire hard-working men and women.

So if someone is a cook, truck driver, engineer, salesman, or in communications, Stevens said the opportunities are limitless.

"To really bridge the gap so they can really, truly understand the value a military veteran can bring to the workforce and a lot of companies just don't get it. Maybe they haven't been military, so they reach out to companies like us, and we can bridge that gap," Stevens said.

Recruit Military is free for anyone who wants to sign up, and if you're nervous about a virtual job fair, they offer webinars to help you prep.
