My name is Mike O’Meara, I am the Founder of Salute Veterans Inc., as a Marine Corps Veteran, I am proud to introduce a very special and unique initiative: The “Hire A Veteran Project”, a comprehensive network of websites that provides veterans centralized access to thousands of resources, training and job opportunities through our Online Virtual Career Fair and our other resources such as VeteransJobFairs.com, VeteransSeminars.com, VeteransDirectory.com, VeteranResumes.com and job postings from our original sister company HireAVeteran.com.
After getting out of the Marines I embarked on a 10 year entrepreneurial path and due to unforeseen circumstances, I suddenly found myself in the job market during the economic downturn in 2009 and couldn’t find a job. I quickly realized at that time there were no centralized websites providing listings for veterans’ job fairs and it seemed there were limited employment opportunities for veterans. At this point I had four kids to still raise and our financial situation was very bleak, even if I knew of the local job fairs, which I didn’t (usually until after I missed it) I didn’t have a resume or even know how to create one. Over the years and after that experience, I started thinking of ways to help resolve, at a minimum improve the situation for my fellow veterans. These experiences and ideas have turned into what we call the Hire A Veteran Project.
As a veteran-friendly employer, you are more than likely already attending job fairs with the intent to hire veterans or paying HR consultants and recruiting professionals to obtain access to qualified veterans. In addition to your current efforts, we want you to contemplate a simpler, less costly manner to connect with veterans as a sponsor for “Hire A Veteran Project.” For what others charge for a single job posting…We directly link to your Career Page 24 Hrs. a day and 365 days a year via our Virtual Online Career Fair as well as through ad rotation across our network of sites.
We utilize a multi pronged approach with our unique businesses driven by our websites,
