Contract Professionals, Inc. (CPI) and Get My Vet A Job Work to Find

Careers for Arizona Veterans in a Virtual Environment


Scottsdale, AZ - May 28, 2015 - Contract Professionals, Inc. (CPI) a 33 year old veteran owned technical staffing company that puts veterans to work, based in Waterford, Michigan with offices in Scottsdale, Arizona, is partnering up with Get My Vet a Job – a company based in Gilbert, Arizona designed to break down the obstacles that military men and women face when trying to find employment.


Get My Vet a Job will hold a job fair on June 5, 2015 at the University of Phoenix in Phoenix. CPI will work along side them to ensure that Arizona’s veterans are realizing their career aspirations. “When Get My Vet A Job approached CPI to be a part of the job fair, it made perfect sense,” said Jim Cowper, President, CPI. “We are honored to be serving those that have served this great nation by helping them find employment, and we look forward to interacting with all the companies that are attending.  Cowper went on to say that hiring veteran’s makes good business sense, because they are highly motivated, organized  and they bring a unique skill set to the table.


In addition to the onsite job fair, Get My Vet A Job will simultaneously hold a virtual job fair for veterans, transitioning military members, spouses and family members.  Candidates can be living in any part of Arizona and log into the career fair. https://getmyvetajobevent.com/


Michele Unangst, Founder and President, Get My Vet A Job started the organization in 2012 because she realized that the businesses in Arizona were not taking advantage of a very disciplined, educated and highly skilled talent pool. “Veterans are leaders in every sense of the word and they increase a company’s bottom line. They are exactly the type of human capital that our state needs to remain competitive,” said Unangst. “Working with companies like CPI creates a synergy that has been a long time coming. CPI has been putting veterans to work for more than 30 years. We can learn from their experience and expertise.” The job fair will host 25 other companies all who have committed to helping our nation’s veterans realize the American dream
