How to Find Military-Friendly Companies


Transitioning from a military career to a civilian one can be exciting and challenging. One key aspect of this transition is finding the right company that values and supports veterans, offering opportunities for career growth and success. Fortunately, there are many vet-friendly companies out there actively seeking to hire veterans, transitioning military personnel, and even military spouses - including SkillStorm.

  1. Use Online Military Job Boards:

Utilize online job boards that cater specifically to veterans and transitioning military personnel. Websites such as HireMilitary, Hire Our Heroes, and Military.com regularly list jobs from companies eager to hire veterans for various roles. These platforms often include filters that allow you to search for vet-friendly careers based on your skills, location, and preferences.

  1. Attend Military and Veteran Job Fairs:

Military and veteran job fairs are excellent opportunities to connect directly with recruiters from companies actively seeking to hire veterans. These events provide a chance to discuss your skills, experiences, and aspirations with company representatives face-to-face. Networking at these fairs can give you valuable insights into different industries and companies that align with your career goals.

  1. Utilize Company Websites:

Visit the websites of companies you're interested in to explore their commitment to hiring veterans. Many organizations have dedicated career pages or sections highlighting their support for military personnel. Look for testimonials from current or former employees who have successfully transitioned from the military to civilian roles within the company.

  1. Check for Veteran Hiring Initiatives:

Look for companies that have established veteran hiring initiatives, such as on-the-job training, mentorship programs, or skills translation workshops. These initiatives demonstrate a company's commitment to helping veterans seamlessly transition into their new civilian roles.
