This year’s DirectEmployers 2013 Annual Meeting & Conference will feature a Veterans Career Fair! Learn more in the episode of The Employment Line.

You never know what you’re going to see in sunny San Diego! However, there is a chance you may see a helicopter rescue drill. Did you know that there are 9 Marine Corps and Naval bases in and around San Diego?

According to the United States Department of Labor, Veterans comprise 7.7% of the U.S. labor force and many reside in the area. Are you meeting your veteran hiring goals?

The DirectEmployers Annual Meeting & Conference is quickly approaching and, this year, we’ve added a pre-conference event to extend the Association’s veteran outreach and coincide with your hiring initiatives. Enter in, the Veterans Connect Career Fair on Monday, October 21, from 10 AM – 2 PM. We’ve invited all employers to bring their recruiters and promotional materials, talk with vets and, perhaps, interview onsite. If you are interested in participating, please visit

Employers can also take this week in October to help underwrite the conference, show support for DirectEmployers, and exhibit in the DEAM13 Expo Hall. For more information regarding underwriter opportunities, please visit the Underwriters page.
