Military Staffing Series on Why hire Military/Veterans and How to understand them!!
“American Soldier” by Toby Keith is a song about the life of a soldier in the military, why we do it, and why it must be done. I have long been an advocate for hiring Veterans.
For those of you who follow me you may have seen my past posts on the subject or my labs at Sourcecons on Vet hiring, and you may have seen or been at my webinar on Recruiting blogs on Vet hiring. Were thankful this great cause has gotten even more attention as one of the greatest sourcers, and recruiters ever, Glen Cathey “the Boolean Black Belt” has recently put out a blog about “How to Find Military Veterans for sourcing & Recruiting”.
Having someone the stature of Glen Cathey means the message is getting out, and hopefully soon everyone will understand how and why we should be looking to hire our Military Vets.
This post is the preamble to a 3 part series I am doing. Which will take all the information I put in the webinar, and at the sourcecon labs and put it and more out there for all to use. Most of what I do is to provide the research you need to find Vets. As you all know research comes first in sourcing and I will be providing a top of it.
You will get words to use, boards, programs, and a true understanding of the Military Vets, ranks, MOCs and much more.
