Top 15 Employers for Veterans

Veteran unemployment continues to be an issue in our country, especially for those who have served since 2001, known as Gulf War-era II veterans.  According to data released last month by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, while on its way down, unemployment for this group still lingers around 9%, much higher than overall national unemployment levels of 6.7%.

As President Obama continues with a steady withdrawal of troops from Afghanistan the transition from military life to civilian life will continue to be a relevant issue. It is crucial that employers recognize that U.S. military personnel are part of one of the best-trained workforces in the nation – they can work under intense pressure, are natural problem solvers and think quickly on their feet. In short, as VetJobs declares, veterans make the best employees!
