You probably already know all about our mission to give back to the military community. But that commitment isn’t just for our members. We’re also creating a great place for veterans and their families to build on their skills and advance civilian careers that can really take them places.
It all starts with offering military families a first look from our recruiters, making sure their talents are prioritized when finding new talent. Then, as a top veteran and military spouse employer, we’re providing the programs to attract, develop, and retain exceptional military talent.
Tips to land the job
1. Make a plan
Ask yourself: What type of work is going to be most fulfilling in your career? Look for the people and opportunities that can help take you where you want to go. Be ready to share your story in person and on social.
2. IDENTIFY SUPPORT ORGANIZATIONS
A lot of people want to help veterans like you succeed. Look for groups at the local, regional, and national levels, like Veterati, USO, and Hiring Our Heroes.
3. FIND CAREER OPPORTUNITIES
Look for opportunities that match your skills, experience, and interests.
4. APPLY EARLY
Several hundred candidates might apply for just one role. So, try to get your application in within the first day or two.
