On July 22, Forward March Inc. and the Missouri National Guard hosted a Job Fair at Camp Crowder in Neosho, MO. The job fair was an opportunity for employers to see Soldiers and Officers in their environment  during their two week annual training.

Employers from Neosho, Joplin and surrounding areas came and set up booths for Soldiers to learn more about their companies and open positions and then got to brave the heat and tour the camp and experience first hand what the Soldiers do during the Annual Training, like the repel tower and obstacle course.

Forward March Inc. and the MO National Guard work closely to help facilitate better opportunities for both employers and Soldiers.

Here is something I bet you did not know. Some military personnel who have transitioned out of the military have taken a fast-track training program at Fred Astaire Dance Studios. In just a few months (that’s right MONTHS) they have gone from knowing little-to-nothing about dance to being actual dance instructors. In a VERY short amount of time they moved up to managing, owning a franchise and now to being among the top producing studios in the company. What we have found at Forward March Inc. is that military personnel are especially suited not only for the training and becoming instructors themselves, but becoming highly successful in the company.  Forward March Inc. has an outstanding relationship with our customer Fred Astarie Dance Studios. You owe it to yourself to check out our previous post to learn more about the outstanding opportunities for employment and even franchise ownership with them.
