Why You Should Be Hiring Veterans?

Posted on the 10 December 2018 by Gaurav Tiwari @wpgaurav

Unemployment rates are sky high all over the globe and not only in USA, and those for veterans are over twenty percent higher than the national average (cite Forbes). A group of men and women who have been specially trained for missions across the globe is struggling to attain jobs after their time of service. Equipped with extensive training and skills, these individuals make excellent additions to all sorts of workplaces, which is exactly why you should be hiring veterans.


Veterans are, perhaps, the most adaptable group of people that exists. Training in a variety of technical, practical, and academic fields is available to each and every veteran during their service. Uniquely qualified to work under pressure, veterans can adjust to any set of circumstances as it changes. After all, being able to work with change often means the difference between life and death on deployment.

Quick Learners

Why You Should be Hiring Veterans?

In order to survive (and avoid disciplinary action), veterans are required to learn quickly. Picking up new tasks in a fast and efficient manner is completely translatable to the civilian working world. Whether in a bank, a retail store, or an investment firm, an employee must understand policies, execute proper procedures, and document tasks accordingly. All of these skills need to be internalized during as short of a training period as possible.


Veterans have internalized a structured system of respect. They are able to adhere to policies, procedures, and rules, while understanding that these rules are in place for the greater good. They also understand hierarchy. In order to be part of the workforce, subordinates need to mind proper etiquette. Veterans are pros at bringing problems to managers and dealing with situations as best they can before they escalate.

Leadership and Teamwork

In order to complete missions, veterans (when they were active duty) must work together cohesively. In positions of leadership, these individuals learned to think for the good of the group rather than to make decisions for personal gain. Lives were often at stake, and welfare was a bigger picture than one person's success. This expanded perspective translates into civilian working culture; veterans can make work decisions based on the good of an entire business.

Veterans receive extensive education in various forms throughout their time of service. Military colleges, training academies, military-friendly school, and certification programs all exist to ensure that active duty men and women are ready to perform their jobs. Whether training to be a medic, a mechanic, or a higher ranked leader, these individuals bring all of their learned skills with them into the civilian workforce.


Veterans may be aware of policies, advancements, and regulations on a more global level than many civilians based on their training. Particular equipment is utilized in each branch of the military that is not accessible to civilians. Rules for operating these pieces of equipment often lend themselves to other technological operations in the working world. News of technological advances also filters through the military at a quick rate compared to the civilian world.

Truly, adaptability, malleability, respect, leadership, teamwork, and technological ability make veterans one of the most advantageous groups of people from which to select employees in the civilian workforce. Extensive schooling and training mean that these men and women are more than ready to be part of public and private sector businesses alike.
