U.S military personnel receive some of the best training in the world. But it’s not always easy to see how someone’s military background applies to the civilian work world. Employers often underestimate the potential that veterans have or overlook them as viable candidates because their qualifications aren’t immediately seen as transferable.
Military spouses also encounter obstacles in their job search because they frequently experience employment gaps when their partner is deployed to a new location.
As a staffing firm, we are ideally positioned to help veterans with their careers. We’ve focused our efforts into what we have named the Robert Half Veterans Initiative, the goals of which are to:
- Provide career resources to veterans and military spouses
- Help veterans identify civilian career opportunities where both their military experience and their technical and soft skills will be understood and valued
- Work with organizations that support the military community
- Train our employees to translate veterans’ specialized skills for civilian employers
- Help our internal staff be more effective at connecting veteran candidates with opportunities for which they are a good fit, either within our organization or at our clients’ businesses
