Hiring-Veterans Welcome

http://www.ere.net/2012/03/01/dear-corporate-america-from-any-veteran-usa/

Great article-but there are definitely some key points that this writer needs to understand.

I think that providing a resume that reflects your skills in a manner that is similar to the job you are applying for makes things much easier for a recruiter. I might review over 80 resumes for just one position during a large chunk of my day, and I can tell you that I will not look up 20 acronyms for ONE resume.

I would personally love to hire more veterans, but without a strong cover letter explaining how your previous jobs functions in the military translate into my company and a readable resume, that just isn’t going to happen.

What I would love to see are more RPO’s that are focused towards getting veterans hired! I would work for that company!

Thoughts???

Namaste
