Let’s Do Our Best for this National Hire a Veteran Day

Let’s Do Our Best for this National Hire a Veteran Day

We can express our gratitude to those who have made the ultimate service by hiring a veteran.

Last year marked the inaugural Hire a Veteran Day.  Hire a Veteran Day was established by Hire our Heroes, a non-profit organization dedicated to helping veterans transition back into civilian life by helping them find employment.  According to the site, 64% of veterans experience difficulty transitioning back into civilian life, and 69% of veterans claim that finding a job was their biggest challenge after returning from active duty.  In recognition of Hire a Veteran Day here’s more information about Hire Our Heroes and what this organization is hoping to accomplish.

According to Hire Our Heroes (HOH), unemployment is one of the biggest concerns when it comes time for a veteran to transition back into civilian life.  With over a million veterans unemployed and many more joining their unemployment status every day, it’s important that we support these heroes just as they have supported our country.

HOH explains that the solution to the unemployment problem lies with us.  By being ready, willing, and able to welcome veterans back into the civilian workforce, we can make their transition much smoother.  HOH goes on to explain that they strive to offer veterans the training, mentorship, and coaching that they need to operate in civilian life.  Not only does HOH endeavor to provide veterans with the skills they need to become employed in the civilian workforce, but they also actively host job fairs and help veterans get placed at new jobs.

In addition to these services, HOH also assists veterans with resume writing, social media training, and networking.  Even after a veteran is hired, HOH continues to offer their assistance and support to ensure that their transition into full-time employment goes seamlessly.

On Hire a Veteran Day, HOH asks us to give veterans the chance that they deserve.  Together, we can work to ensure that veteran unemployment rates drop throughout our country.
