Promoting Veteran Job Creation

Promoting Veteran Job Creation

At Veterans Advantage, we know those who have served in the military often make the best employees - they are hard-working, disciplined, and talented. Despite this, veterans often face silent discrimination when applying for a job after service - their qualifications don't always easily translate, and civilians don't understand much of the military jargon and acronyms veterans are used to using on a daily basis. 

That's why we organize job fairs and career education events, like our recent Veteran Career Symposium in New York City, and give military vets free resources like our Veterans Advantage Jobs and Career Network, where they can find employment opportunities with vet-friendly companies in their area. We pay for this service ourselves so that we can make it free for employers to list vet-friendly jobs, removing some of the stress on recruitment professionals who can sometimes face unique roadblocks when helping vets transition from military to civilian employment.

"Veterans are uniquely qualified with a strong skill set that is highly attractive to Corporate America, and we need to help them get hired right away”, says Veterans Advantage CEO Higgins, who is a former Wall Street executive and Vietnam Veteran. “Many times, a 'foot in the door' with a vet-friendly company that has experienced these positive skills and the many attractive military attributes among its current veteran employees is all a veteran needs to get started."

We helped found Veterans Week in 2012, getting an official Mayoral Proclamation. And the events continue to grow in number beyond a week -- we're talking about a month-long series of events, which includes new VetRewards savings opportunities just for Veterans Day. We will start announcing those in our next Benefits Alert and on our VeteransWeekNYC.org site.
