One trend I keep stumbling upon is that businesses, whether it’s for profit, non-profit, startups, they are continuously seeking and yearning for leadership, valuable skill sets, tenacity and problem solving skills in candidates. Military Veterans possess these qualities, amongst others.
As a business owner, I am thrilled to announce that Fidelis is committed to helping bridge the gap in the Veteran hiring process. I have had many conversations with Veterans that continue to face challenges in the hiring process for multiple reasons: a) their resumes may not be as “polished” as their competition, b) networking is not their strength, c) after applying to a company that “hires Veterans,” the applicant never hears back!
As a Veteran and business owner, I know how challenging it is to meet employers that value the leadership capabilities and unique skills learned in the armed forces. I also know it may feel like an uphill battle to develop a resume and a cover letter specifically to the company and job description. It’s time consuming!
