Why Hire a Veteran?

  • Accelerated learning curve: Veterans have the proven ability to learn new skills and concepts.
  • Leadership: The military trains people to lead by example as well as through direction, delegation, motivation, and inspiration.
  • Teamwork. Veterans understand how genuine teamwork grows out of a responsibility to one’s colleagues.
  • Efficient performance under pressure: Veterans understand the rigors of tight schedules and limited resources.
  • Technology and globalization: Because of their experiences in the service, veterans are usually aware of international and technical trends pertinent to business and industry.
  • Triumph over adversity: In addition to dealing positively with the typical issues of personal maturity, veterans have frequently triumphed over great adversity.
