More vets getting work
With more soldiers coming home, more emphasis is being placed on getting them work.
Some stories—such as vet suicide and PTSD—may be subconsciously influencing employers, but CareerBuilder says more vets are getting work anyway.
There was a story this morning in our paper about former corpsmen working with a local hospital to check Medicare patients’ care after leaving the hospital. Sounds like a great job!
According to CareerBuilder, 29% of employers now actively look for vets. But vet status is not always evident.
The younger vets, 18 to 24, have the highest unemployment. They made the world safe for us—how about us returning the favor?
If you are a vet, you get preference in federal hiring, did you know that?
