Recruiting Veterans: Facilitating The Transition Between Military Service And Civilian Careers
|Date / Time:
If you’re looking to build a workforce population that’s talented, skilled and reliable, it’s hard to imagine a better-suited group than military veterans. On paper, these talented individuals seem like they should be a natural fit for any employer. But, the question many ask is, “Why is it so hard to find, recruit, and hire them?”
Military veterans making the jump to the civilian world face challenges that many employers and recruiting firms simply don’t understand because they haven’t lived through the unique experience of that transition.
Without proper training on how to successfully source this group, recruiters stand to miss out on some great potential candidates. But with some education and insight, you can learn to better connect with high-potential veterans while simultaneously helping them acclimate to the civilian world.
Join us when Bob Wheeler, a retired U.S. Navy veteran who now advocates for veteran hiring with ClearedJobs.Net, will provide a unique and tactical perspective into the mindset of potential veteran hires, taking into account their hopes, their fears, and how to translate military experience into the skillsets desired by the private sector.

Bob Wheeler left the Navy in 2014 following a 20-year career in which his final assignment was recruiting health care professionals in the Baltimore area. Over the past four years he has authored numerous articles tackling veteran hiring issues and has made formal presentations to various groups on both sides of the veteran hiring conversation. In his current position as an account representative for the niche job board ClearedJobs.Net he makes frequent contributions to the company blog offering tips to veteran jobseekers and hosts roundtable discussion with recruiters and job seekers as part of their job fairs.
|About Webcasts / Audio Conferences / Podcasts:|
Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you
attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.
versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without
any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back
at work immediately after the session ends!
And though with recorded versions you do lose the ability to ask questions, you gain the ability to hear the presentation numerous
times and to share it with others in your office.
Handout materials and the phone number for live presentations are made available to you prior to the event via email from the
presenter and from the "MyAccount" link on the menu bar. Copies of the presentations are included with recorded versions.
