Why Hiring a Veteran is Good Business!
Hire Our Heroes!
I am always on the look-out for ways to get the word out that Veterans transitioning into the Civilian workforce make great employees or even better — helping them start their own small business (online or offline.)
I have a special place in my heart for helping disabled/wounded veterans find their place again in this world. Being disabled myself, I’ve found that there are options working online. Being able to provide value online and also being able to monetize what you do is a shot in the arm for my self-esteem.
During my daily research, I came across the following blog post written by Bob Ulin, a retired Army Colonel and Chairman and CEO of the Center for Transitional Leadership, a nonprofit corporation that helps military personnel find meaningful leadership positions in the business world. After reading it I decided to repost it in its entirety; I did not want to miss anything by paraphrasing it. If one business owner sees this and hires one Hero it is worth it.
Why Should You Hire a Veteran?
The short answer is because it’s good for you and good for your business. Let me explain.
