Every day, hundreds of our military personnel leave the service in search of civilian employment. On July 25th, National Hire A Veteran Day reminds employers to consider veterans to fill their open positions. As highly trained, qualified individuals, they’re ideal for numerous trades.

Legislation protects separating service members as they enter the civilian workforce. However, the best way a potential employer can honor a veteran is to hire one!

While other service members continue to serve in points unknown, the day provides their returning brothers and sisters with an opportunity. Many skills gained in the military world transfer to the civilian world. Both small and large businesses benefit from the talent of our veterans, too. Regardless of the position, find qualified candidates in a range of fields. For example:

  • Information Technology
  • Engineering
  • Cyber Security
  • Sales
  • Marketing
  • Management
  • Finance
  • Healthcare
  • Skilled Trades


“Hire for Attitude, Train for Skill” and do it with a Veteran!

Use #HireAVeteranDay to share on social media.


Marine Corps veteran Dan Caporale, founder of Hire Our Heroes, also founded National Hire a Veteran Day. The day serves as a call to action to hire more veterans! By spreading awareness and creating the #1 Veteran Job Board platform, Hire Our Heroes has become the connective tissue linking corporate America to our veterans. It also supports the job searches of veteran spouses looking for employment.

Veterans deserve the ultimate respect. They have and continue to sacrifice in the fight to preserve the freedoms we enjoy. Try honoring these dates as well.
