About the Annual Veteran Recruiting Conference

Welcome to the Veteran Recruiting Conference!  2022 will be our 10th annual event and we are expecting attendees from 110-140 large companies that are looking for advice, connections and resources to help them successfully develop, execute and sustain veteran recruiting and retention programs.

The 2022 event will be in person at a warm location TBA in late summer 2021.

There are a number of Fortune 500 companies that consider this a “must attend” event every year.

Sessions are led by talent acquisition leaders from various companies who have demonstrated success in these areas and by experts in the area of compliance.

The conference also includes an industry breakout session to encourage dialog and sharing of effective military recruitment practices between companies facing similar talent acquisition challenges.

Highly Targeted Information

This event is comprised of a defined audience – those who are responsible for the military recruiting programs and/or veteran recruiting results at their companies.

Small Conference Size

Given the defined target audience, the conference size (less than 200 participants) ensures maximum education and networking time.

ABOUT THE VALUE OF A VETERAN

Founded in 2007, The Value Of a Veteran is a human resources training and consulting firm that specializes in educating employers on how to recruit and retain veterans. It was the first company to create commercially available comprehensive training expressly for employers, human resources professionals and hiring managers that covered all aspects of veteran recruitment and retention.

Its content is the only one available that was developed by someone with both significant military experience AND staffing/recruiting experience, making it both relevant and realistically actionable for recruiters and managers to implement. In addition to offering training and consulting, its newest services include highly targeted virtual career fairs, resume databases and job boards to help companies connect with student veterans , military skilled trades and military healthcare professionals.
