Veterans Transitioning To The Civilian Workforce Have More Support Options
SAN DIEGO, CA, May 16, 2019 /24-7PressRelease/ — Veterans are recognized for many positive traits, including leadership, teamwork, technical savvy, discipline, and ability to perform under pressure. When they begin their transition from military service to the civilian workforce, they often encounter unfamiliar process and cultural differences.
Among other things, there’s a good chance they’ll be talking with recruiters, hiring managers, and others who are not familiar with the unique characteristics of military service. As a result, veterans may experience challenges in effectively translating their military skills and experience to their civilian equivalents.
ZERO-COST TOOLS AVAILABLE TO MILITARY SUPPORT ORGANIZATIONS
To help out, Job Hunter Pro, a human resources solutions provider headquartered in San Diego, CA, is providing zero-cost tools and resources to any organization whose mission includes helpings military veterans transition to the civilian workforce. It’s the equivalent of a full-blown outplacement and transition services solution at no cost.
“The San Diego area has a large military population and we are especially grateful for what our veterans do for us locally, and the country as a whole,” said Jeff Rogers, CEO at Job Hunter Pro. “It’s important to us to give back to the communities we serve, and particularly to those who do so much to protect our freedoms.”
IMPROVING AWARENESS OF CIVILIAN JOB MARKET CHARACTERISTICS
Most of the skills developed in the military can readily carry over to duties and responsibilities in the civilian sector. However, military personnel making the transition typically experience a cultural shift. Their new environment is likely to be more varied and less structured than what they’ve become accustomed to during their military service.
While making the transition is not complicated, it helps to understand what to expect. For example, helping veterans translate their military education and training to civilian equivalents helps them explain and capitalize on their military accomplishments. Enhancing one’s understanding cultural and administrative differences can make the transition a lot easier.
Any organization engaged in helping transitioning veterans prepare for the job search challenges ahead can take advantage of the available zero-cost tools and resources. Because they’re web-based, it’s easy, and there’s no administrative overhead … just straight-forward support for transitioning veterans. Branding and customization are available for organizations wanting to personalize the transition experience.
