Veterans

Hire a Vet

Many veterans struggle to market themselves effectively. Employers receive resumes every day from veterans, but managers have trouble understanding the military lingo and identifying transferable skills.

There are stigmas associated with veterans: some employers believe Iraq and Afghanistan veterans are not good job candidates due to physical or psychological disabilities. Our nation has invested considerable resources into training its military service members, only to “leave money on the table” when those members become unemployed veterans.

Why Hire A Vet

  • Vets have the proven ability to quickly learn new skills and concepts. They possess identifiable and transferable skills proven to achieve success.
  • Vets understand practical ways to manage and achieve goals in even the most trying circumstances. They are trained to lead by example as well as through direction, delegation, motivation, and inspiration.
  • Vets understand how genuine teamwork grows out of a responsibility to one’s colleagues and how diverse individuals or groups can best work together to achieve overarching objectives.
  • Vets have the capacity to know how to accomplish tasks on time and in spite of stress or adversity. They understand the importance of dedication and perseverance.

Why not give one of our vets a chance? We believe you’ll be glad you did!
