Penske has expanded its veteran recruiting efforts by working withMilicruit, a website devoted to pairing U.S. military veterans with prospective employers through online employment fairs.
This Thursday, Penske will partake in Milicruit’s national virtual career fair, hosting real-time chats with prospective employees from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. ET. Veterans can log onto the fair, and communicate with Penske, and other leading companies, regarding employment opportunities.
Currently, Penske is seeking to fill openings across the U.S., for jobs such as technicians/mechanics, vehicle maintenance supervisors/managers, drivers, sales and customer service.
The company will take part in 16 other regional and national virtual career fairs, through November. Penske has had success in hiring veterans in a wide array of jobs.
Penske also participates in the Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR), which is an arm of the U.S. Department of Defense. Employers that adhere to ESGR guidelines provide a supportive environment to employees serving in the military’s various reserve units.
