US Military Veterans in Demand

Published Fri Jul 01 2005


The article focuses on the demand of military veterans in the United States. According to MilitaryStars, an organization that holds job fairs to bring together service members and companies with openings to fill, more than 200,000 people leave the military each year, and many of them transition to civilian jobs. Dave Suszko, a retired Air Force recruiter and director of candidate services for MilitaryStars says that the military labor market is the second largest renewable labor pool in the nation. These are mature, talented professionals who instantly add value to companies that hire them. A recent "Washington Post" article, "A Few Good Recruits," described how even injured veterans are in high demand.
