Today is Hire a Veteran Day to remind businesses of the skillset and importance of hiring a veteran.
Why Hire a Veteran
Veterans are disciplined, reliable, and have a strong work ethic. They are trained to follow orders and to work as part of a team. They understand the importance of chain of command. Veterans also have leadership experience.
Veterans are accustomed to working in high-pressure situations and can stay calm under pressure. They often have experience with life-and-death decision making.
Veterans often have specialized skillsets. For example, many veterans have experience with heavy machinery, weapons, and other equipment. They may also have medical training or experience with computer systems.
Finally, veterans are grateful for the opportunity to work. They understand that a job is not just about earning a paycheck; it's about contributing to something larger than themselves. They take pride in their work and are loyal to their employer.
If you're looking for a disciplined, reliable, and hardworking employee, consider hiring a veteran. You won't be disappointed.
