A lot of companies shy away from hiring veterans because they don’t understand the value that they may bring to the table. 

Amazon, Google, Microsoft, Cisco & Walgreens have programs in full force but the majority of startups have yet to really get on board. The diversity in thought that comes from hiring a vet may be the competitive edge that your startup needs to propel your business ahead of your competition.

This show is proudly sponsored by Vidoori

Today’s Quote:

"We hire military veterans because they make great employees. They bring proven technical and leadership skills. They understand teamwork, and they're adaptable. Bottom line, hiring veterans is good for business."

How to Successfully hire Veterans

Key Takeaways:

  • Hire military...highly technical, lots of experience, trustworthy, bang for your buck  
  • Transactional vs relational (stick with relational)
