Veteran and Military spouse
DAV and RecruitMilitary will host the Denver Veterans Job Fair on Thursday, August 15th from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Broncos Stadium at Mile High. This free event for veterans, military spouses, transitioning military, National Guard members and Reservists features 80+ employers ready to hire.

The company is actively working to help address the exorbitantly high unemployment rate of military spouses - nearly 25 percent - a rate more than six times the national average. This is the highest unemployment rate of any singular group in the U.S. Through its partnership with Google, a new job search tool is now available to assist military spouse and military trained talent to explore 8,000 remote work options in the RecruitMilitary database of more than 250,000 jobs. With more than 140 veteran and military spouse job fairs this year, RecruitMilitary offers veterans and military spouses the most opportunities of any organization to help facilitate their future career goals.
Peanut launches in Denver today
Peanut, the social network for modern motherhood, enables mothers (and mothers to be) to meet, chat and learn from one another. They say it takes a village to raise a child, Peanut helps women find their village.
Peanut’s Discovery feature operates similarly to a dating app. You fill out your profile, including information such as your neighborhood, bio, photos, age/gender of your children or due date, interests, and other defining factors such as work life and education. The app uses intelligent algorithms and geo-location to match you with like-minded women nearby. Once matched, users can chat and create meetups.
Peanut’s Community feature forms their latest addition to the app. Users can ask questions and share experiences across meaningful topics with the wider Peanut community, or join and create groups relating to specific interests or neighborhoods. The community have actively created groups focusing on identities such as single moms, LGBTQ, and Crunchy Moms; and common interests such as parenting styles, fitness groups and special needs kids. Finding common interests outside of having kids is at the heart of Peanut.
The app is currently available across the US, CA, AUS and UK. It’s free to download from the App Store and Google Play.
