National Hire a Veteran Day: 5 Reasons Why It’s Good to Hire Veterans to Work for You

National Hire a Veteran Day | Goodwill Car Donations

These Underestimated Job Seekers Could Be What Your Company Needs

Veterans are some of the most underrated groups of individuals when it comes to getting jobs. Unfortunately, some people associate their previous military experience with negative issues. However, the skills they developed while in service can actually benefit the company that hires them.

National Hire a Veteran Day on July 25th serves to underscore the positive contributions of veterans in the civilian workforce. It’s also a call to action for former service members to update their resumes and start the next chapter of their lives after the military.

Goodwill Car Donations finds plenty of overlooked benefits to hiring veterans. If you are a recruiter or an HR personnel looking for the right person for the job, here are some of the things that vets can bring to the table.

  1. They work well as members of a team.

Military personnel are trained to work together like well-oiled cogs in a machine. They typically think on their feet and adjust to their environment easily because of their quick learning curve. They would not have lasted in the military without these skills. They also understand the value that each team member brings and how important responsibility is in accomplishing their goal.

  1. They make excellent leaders.

Veterans were trained to do well in leadership positions through direction, delegation, motivation, and inspiration. They understand the role of leaders in guiding their teams and working with their peers.

  1. They perform well under pressure.

Veterans understand limitations in time and resources and are quite resourceful in managing priorities to achieve their team’s objective.

  1. They go by the procedure.

Veterans are respectful of the hierarchy. They also value the accountability of their organization’s members as well as adherence to policies and procedures. The military has trained them to follow rigid procedures, and this plays greatly into their sense of compliance.

  1. They don’t give up easily.

Vets are used to dealing with challenges, so expect them to stick it out when things go sideways. You should not be surprised when they lead the charge and bounce back stronger than ever.
