Meet the Veteran Services Team

If your goal for the new year is to find a meaningful career with a company that values veterans, you are in luck. At RecruitMilitary, our goal is to help you make it happen. Enter: RecruitMilitary’s veteran services team.

RecruitMilitary’s mission is to help employers connect with America’s best talent - its veterans. The veteran services team makes that connection possible by providing you with the resources and information you need for a successful transition into a civilian career.

Many of the veteran services team members are veterans themselves, and have navigated the same landscape you are now facing. They understand the process of searching for a career after military service. They also understand the unique value and skills that veterans bring to the table and how to help you translate that value to potential employers.

All have different backgrounds. Some of these team members are new, some have been with RecruitMilitary for a while, and some are from our parent company, Bradley-Morris, Inc. Their mission, however, is the same. They are here to help you.

The roles of the veteran services team vary, but each serves a distinct purpose in helping you succeed in your job search. Some roles serve as boots-on-the-ground for our career fairs - running events, offering advice, and making sure you are getting the best experience possible. Others work behind-the-scenes, engaging and communicating with the military community and ensuring we reach as many veterans as possible. Other roles work to bring the best possible tools and resources directly to you, or develop relationships with companies to pave the way for hiring veteran talent. Together, this group of dedicated individuals creates the innovative, resourceful, and committed veteran services team.

I take pride in knowing I assist many in avoiding this experience.”
