Publisher's Letter: They Value Your Service
by Bill Basnett, Publisher
Civilian Job News is pleased to announce our third annual “Most Valuable Employers (MVE) for Military®” recognition. Last year’s winners showcased a variety of companies and industries all actively seeking military veterans for hire, and this year’s list is no different. Several exciting new companies made the cut, and there are some familiar repeats.
The MVE winners were selected based on surveys completed by employers outlining their 2010 recruiting, training and retention plans that best serve transitioning military and veterans. You will find that although these companies are diversified in their sizes and business practices, they all share one commonality: their commitment to hiring and promoting veterans within their organizations.
It should come as no surprise as to why employers continue to embrace this trend. Here are some of the comments we received from our MVE companies on why they actively seek out candidates with a military background:
I have found that military-experienced candidates have several key qualities that make them attractive to companies, including excellent leadership skills, loyalty, and a work ethic beyond reproach. Frankly, employers need to look no further than what you have to offer. Your experiences and expertise gained in the military make you the ideal candidate for many private sector companies.
We are proud that these employers are committed to helping transitioning military and veterans make the move into a civilian career. Make sure to include the “Most Valuable Employers for Military” list as a resource for your civilian job search as you begin your new journey.
