Recruiting Veterans: Facilitating The Transition Between Military Service And Civilian Careers

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.
