Why Veterans Make Great Employees

why hire veterans

Today marks Veterans Day, a time in which we honor the men and women who served in our armed forces.

Veterans gain many solid skills and build character in the course of defending their country. And that can translate into success in a civilian job. In fact, research shows that the unemployment rates for veterans are consistently below the unemployment rates for the general population.

Veterans seeking employment can get assistance at the more than 2,500 American Job Centers across the country. Attending special veterans’ job fairs and seeking out employers who are actively recruiting veterans are other options for vets looking to land a job.
