Veterans and returning military are excellent employees for most companies.

San Francisco, CA, February 08, 2011
-- IHireVeterans.com has published the Top Ten Reasons for Hiring a Veteran at http://www.ihireveterans.com/employers. Their aim is to educate employers on the hard and soft skills offered by today’s military service members.

“The common misconception amongst employers is that military veterans bring skill-sets that are largely not appropriate to civilian careers. “Tank Drivers or Infantrymen are not in high demand these days, however military veterans offer much more than their MOS or Military Occupation Specialty Code might reveal. Things like Teamwork, Leadership and Integrity are essential qualities taught to every service member. In addition, they are exposed to leading edge technologies and health and safety standards,” noted Sela Rodriguez, Vice President of Veterans Affairs for IHireVeterans.com.

Veterans have the proven ability to learn new skills and concepts. They can enter your workforce with identifiable and transferable skills, proven in real-world situations. This background can enhance your organization’s productivity.

“The bottom line is that veterans provide employers with skills and qualities not often found in new college grads. They can hit the ground running and can follow instructions to the letter, delivering accelerated performance along the way,” added Rodriguez.

Military service members are also taught respect for procedures and respect for other individuals that might not look like them. Diversity and Inclusion is alive and well in the US Military services.

As operations wind down in Iraq, more and more veterans will be seeking employment opportunities in the private sector. Employers are encouraged to extend a hand to these American heroes and give them a chance to prove their value to their new companies.

IHireVeterans.com and their sister sites Diversity-job.com and Green-Employers.com support America’s returning military and veterans. These sites are part of the Job1 family of employment resources.
