Starbucks - VetRec16

CVS - VetRec16

Plans are already underway for the 6th annual Veteran Recruiting Conference to be held February 27 – March 1, 2018 in Dallas, Texas.

We are looking for dynamic speakers who are willing to drill down and share the details of specific things their companies are doing particularly well with veteran recruiting and retention.

Conference attendees are talent acquisition and diversity program professionals who are responsible for the veteran recruiting program at their company or who oversee all veteran affairs for their company.  Attendees represent company sizes of 5,000+ employees (50% will be 25,000+ employees or larger) with all the typical recruiting & retention challenges of large, national/international employers.

We welcome speaker submissions from Directors of Talent Acquisition and veteran recruitment/retention program managers representing corporations or government agencies
