Employers have a talent shortage, particularly in technical fields. Returning veterans are an often overlooked talent pool that offers a gold mine of technical and applied skills, particularly in the areas of teamwork and leadership, that can help organizations meet their business needs.

Employers can successfully hire veterans if they know where to find vets, learn how to translate a veteran’s resume, can read between the lines during a job interview, and realize that not all veterans have PTSD. This report provides information to help organizations hire veterans.
