The Lower Columbia Human Resources Management Association (LCHRMA) will host a Veterans Career Fair! We are looking for businesses interested in hiring Veterans! Here are 10 reasons hiring a Veteran may be beneficial to you and your company:
Accelerated learning curve: Veterans have the proven ability to learn new skills and concepts. Leadership: The military trains people to lead by example as well as through direction, delegation, motivation, and inspiration. Teamwork. Veterans understand how genuine teamwork grows out of a responsibility to one’s colleagues. Diversity and inclusion in action: Veterans have learned to work side by side with individuals regardless of diverse race, gender, geographic origin, ethnic background, religion, and economic status as well as mental, physical, and attitudinal capabilities. Efficient performance under pressure: Veterans understand the rigors of tight schedules and limited resources. They have developed the capacity to know how to accomplish priorities on time, despite tremendous stress. Respect for procedures: Veterans have gained a unique perspective on the value of accountability. They can grasp their place within an organizational framework, becoming responsible for subordinates’ actions to higher supervisory levels. Technology and globalization: Because of their experiences in the service, veterans are usually aware of international and technical trends pertinent to business and industry. Integrity: Veterans know what it means to do “an honest day’s work.” Conscious of health and safety standards: Thanks to extensive training, veterans are aware of health and safety protocols both for themselves and the welfare of others. Triumph over adversity: In addition to dealing positively with the typical issues of personal maturity, veterans have frequently triumphed over great adversity.
