The Washington Redskins and its brand new Redskins Military Club joined forces with DAV/RecruitMilitary on Thursday for an All Veterans Job Fair at FedExFIeld.

The event featured 73 companies in the Washington D.C. area looking to hire both active and retired military members. There were a wide variety of employers tabling along the Joe Gibbs Club Level at FedExField, including military contracting firms like Lockheed Martin all the way to food and beverage service companies such as Starbucks and Jimmy John’s.

This networking experience allowed military members to connect with recruiters and learn about potential job opportunities for their careers after serving their country.

One company that prides itself on hiring former members of the military is Bank of America. Since 2011, Bank of America has hired more than 4,000 veterans, and their director of military recruitment, David Smith, believes veterans bring many special talents to their company.

“They bring to the table all the core characteristics that we look at in terms of leadership and teamwork,” Smith said. “They bring a lot to the table and can be flexible and very creative.”

Although there were many companies looking for job candidates, a few universities were also connecting with members of the military who were seeking higher education at Thursday's job fair.

Johns Hopkins Carey Business School was offering opportunities for veterans to get their Master’s degree and ways to go back to school. Associate director Carly Ackley said the school is honored to be able to help former military members pursue their goals.

“To see so many great students and great people here and to be able to talk to them is so amazing,” Ackley said. “These people are fantastic, and they bring incredible experience and work ethic that they can utilize in the school and workplace.”

With so many brave and courageous men and women in attendance, the Redskins were delighted to host so many eager employers and prospective employees.
