Millions of veterans (many of them unemployed) need your help, so get started today and position yourself as a Military Resume Writer!
Currently, there are 14 million military veterans in the workforce, with more than 225,000 Active Duty military personnel transitioning each year. Many military veterans who transition to the civilian workforce feel they are underemployed, not using their potential in their current job, for up to four years after separation. This is frequently because:
- The hiring companies do not fully appreciate the technical skills and leadership abilities of a person who has served in the military; and/or
- The military veteran was not fully knowledgeable of how to approach the civilian job market.
When these veterans exit the military at the conclusion of their service, they need help in the transition from their military careers to their new careers in the civilian workforce.
