Search & Employ® Magazine

July / August 2015

Welcome to the July-August issue of RecruitMilitary’s Search & Employ®. The featured industries of this issue are transportation/logistics and manufacturing.

Of all the disciplines of war and the military, logistics is one of the most fundamental. The Chinese philosopher of war Sun Tzu (544-496 BC) said that “the line between disorder and order lies in logistics.” And what is true of war – and planning for war – is also true of civilian economic activities. As a result, the economy of the United States has an endless appetite for veterans who understand logistics, or supply chain management as it is sometimes called in the business world.

And there is more good news for veterans: Nearly every job in the U.S. military teaches insights into transportation and logistics. In fact, there simply no better training ground for a career in transportation and logistics than our military. So veterans should be confident as they dialog with companies that are hiring in these fields.

WELCOME BACK, MANUFACTURING

Virtually unheralded by our media, manufacturing jobs have been returning to North America after many years of outsourcing to countries with lower labor costs. This is a great relief: The degradation of our country’s willingness and ability to make physical things had been rising to the level of a natural security threat. As Thomas Jefferson wrote in 1816, “Experience has taught me that [domestic] manufactures are now as necessary to our independence as to our comfort.”

But even beyond the transportation/ logistics and manufacturing industries, opportunities continue to abound for high-quality veteran talent. The issue of Search & Employ®, like every other issue, is chock full of ads from companies that are eager to meet, interview, and hire you. There has simply never been a better time to be a veteran looking for career opportunity in the United States of America.

At our all-veteran job fairs, for example, employers are literally lining up to get a shot at learning how veterans can solve their human capital needs. So figure out what you want to do, learn to market yourself, get to our events, register in our database (www.recruitmililtary.com), and network, network, network.

Best wishes,

Peter A. Gudmundsson
