Badge of honor: Attract and hire military veterans

According to the U.S. Census Bureau, in 2018, there were nearly 18 million veterans in the U.S. alone. And on CareerBuilder 30% of our total candidate audience is military affiliated. With Veterans Day fast approaching, now is the perfect time for you to successfully tap into our diverse talent pool of service members and their families. 

You can start to engage veterans, transitioning military members, and their families by showcasing your commitment to these candidates with CareerBuilder’s new veteran job postings enhancement. With this enhancement, candidates can see your support for veterans and their families on all your job postings and filter only to look for jobs that support them. 

What makes veterans terrific employees? Those who have served in any branch of our armed forces have the qualities to be successful in an endless array of positions. Their training has conditioned them to excel at teamwork, strategic thinking, and leadership with a healthy amount of loyalty. And military family members – spouses, siblings, children, and parents – are resilient and supportive and understand how to adapt to change.

Let us help you attract, hire, and retain veterans so you can help them and their families transition from military service to thriving civilian careers – a wonderful way to thank them for their service. Get started today at
