How Do You Market A Job to Veterans?
Hiring the right people can be challenging and expensive. If you are seeking a more disciplined culture for your company, you must go to where the discipline cultures exist and make that your pipeline. For many, that culture is found in the U.S. Armed Forces.
Bradley-Morris/RecruitMilitary is the nation’s leading military-to-civilian recruitment firm. We help organizations source, hire, and retain America’s greatest resource: our veterans. Our recruitment marketing tools showcase your organization as a great place to work through branding, messaging, engagement, and measurement.
We have a deep understanding of this diverse group of men and women who are highly skilled with the drive to succeed. Why? Because we walk the walk: most of our employees are veterans themselves. In fact, we earned the Department of Labor’s HIRE Vets Medallion in 2018, its inaugural year.
Why Recruitment Marketing for Attracting Veterans to Your Organization?
The candidate experience during the job search process has never been more important. How well you communicate your brand to veteran job seekers directly impacts whether they apply for and accept a job with you. Our three-pronged solution of recruiting, targeting, and branding delivers the right strategies to engage your organization with our veteran audience.
Unlike traditional recruiting firms, Bradley-Morris/RecruitMilitary’s contingency recruiting services makes placements by connecting with military candidates we already know. Candidates come from both officer and enlisted ranks and possess the leadership and technical skills that are the most sought-after by our clients. Our expansive database of registered veteran candidates allows us to fill your open positions quickly and efficiently with a low time-to-fill rate. Our methods work well for unique hiring challenges, large-volume vacancies, or hard-to-fill openings requiring special qualifications or in high-demand fields.
Reach the most relevant candidates through America’s largest single-source veteran resume database of veterans and military spouses, with hundreds of new candidates registering daily. It’s the ideal place for showcasing job postings, sending targeted emails, and digital employment branding.
Featuring Google Cloud’s new remote search technology powered by AI, our recruitment database offers a robust selection of veteran resumes loaded with the skills and qualities that power great organizations. The efficiency and speed of our technology lowers both your cost per hire and time to hire.
