National Hire a Veteran Day: Here’s How You Can Help Our Heroes

Man Looking for a Job | Veteran Car DonationsUnemployment is one of the biggest problems our military men and women face once their service ends. Every year, about 200,000 of them transition to civilian life. Upon separation from the service, the first thing on their minds is to look for a rewarding job.

While military unemployment rates have decreased over the years, there are still thousands of vets who are struggling to find employment. That’s exactly why National Hire a Veteran Day was created.

The event, which takes place on the 25th of July of each year, aims to help retired troops gain smooth entry into the civilian workforce. Employers are urged to consider hiring qualified vets to fill vacant positions in their company. At the same time, our veterans are provided with various resources to make the process of job-seeking much easier.

Although most of them have no prior civilian job experience, our former service members have acquired useful skills during their time in the military. Their discipline, determination, endurance, and ability to focus are just some of the qualities that they can bring into the civilian workforce.

How Organizations Take Part

Thanks to the nationwide movement spurred by the National Hire a Veteran Day, many of our ex-military members have found fulfilling jobs.

The Veteran Benefits Administration offers many positions, particularly in the fields of customer service, counseling, and claims processing. The agency has teamed up with the Department of Labor to match veterans with available positions in public and private companies.

Employers across the country are posting job openings to the Hire Our Heroes Job Board to help our vets kick off their career journey. TrainOurTroops, a military nonprofit based in Austin, Texas, is providing vets and their spouses with free access to advanced online training and certification. Bradley-Morris is another organization that’s dedicated to assisting former members of the armed forces in finding positions that match their skills and desires.
