In light of the effects of Hurricane Sandy across the East Coast, we have just made the decision to reschedule this week’s Philadelphia RecruitMilitary Opportunity Expo.
The RecruitMilitary Philadelphia Opportunity Expo will now take place on Thursday, November 29th from 11:00 AM – 3:00 PM at the Lincoln Financial Field (The “Linc”.)
We decided to reschedule the event for two big reasons:
1. Safety – The safety of our exhibitors and our veterans is of paramount importance to us. After evaluating the news about the weather, power outages, and potential problems with transportation, we decided that there were too many risks and unknowns to move forward with producing the event this week.
2. The “Experience” – We talked with 13 of the 40+ companies scheduled to attend. 7 of these 13 told us they had already decided not to attend the event. Assuming this percentage was applied to the total group, that means more than half of the exhibitors would not be able to attend. Likewise, we believe many of the veterans and military spouses in the area may very well be dealing with flooded basements, power outages, work and family issues, and a host of other big priorities on Thursday.
For those of you in the states being affected by this storm, know that our thoughts and prayers are with you. Also, we appreciate the service of all those in the National Guard who may be called out to assist the citizens in their states.
Finally, for candidates, we’ve already pre-registered you for the November 29th Opportunity Expo. This means you’ll automatically get reminder emails as this new date gets closer. This gives us another month to get a lot more exhibitors to attend, and we look forward to ensuring a great experience for you then.
For clients, we’ve already pre-registered you for the November 29th Opportunity Expo as well. This means you’ll automatically get reminder emails as this new date gets closer. You will also get a phone call tomorrow from your RecruitMilitary Account Executive. The purpose of the phone call will be to confirm you can make it on November 29th.
Thank you very much for your understanding.
