7 Reasons to Hire a Veteran

Searching for a trustworthy, hard-working employee for your office? Why not hire a veteran? Here are 7 reasons why you won’t regret it.  

1. Integrity

The military has already sifted through the candidates for you! Honesty is a virtue that is strongly embraced in the military. If you come across a vet with honorable discharge you know you can count on them in your work space.

2. Team Players

Veterans have had to work effectively together from the beginning. They survived basic training as well as the field by respecting and depending on their team. Veterans know how to work with groups of all sizes, ethnicities, backgrounds, viewpoints and skillsets.

3. Adaptability

Veterans understand how to adapt to extremely stressful conditions. They continually adapt to changing environments and limited resources. Vets understand how to accomplish tasks in a timely manner with whatever is handed to them.

4. Leadership Skills

The military not only trains people to work as a team, but also to be a leader. They are trained through delegation, direction and motivation. They develop the skills to take lead to get the job done.

5. Loyalty

Veterans literally dropped everything and proved their loyalty to the United States of America. They gave back to our country and worked extremely hard for their home. This transitions into the office. A veteran is not looking to job-hop. They are searching for a new home to grow and take pride in and they will do it with discipline and structure that will help grow your business.

6. Accelerated Learning Curve/Trainability

Training is crucial to all branches of the military not only from the first day, but all the way up until discharge. Veterans are used to constant learning. They have also proven the ability to learn new concepts quickly and work in a methodical way which creates a step-by-step outline to reach their goals.

7. HUGE Supply

There are hundreds of thousands of men and women looking for work right now that came home from Iraq and Afghanistan. The military just basically did a first interview for you.

Hiring a U.S. veteran is a great addition to your office space. Happy Veteran’s Day America.
