Unemployment continues to hold steady at record highs, and veteran unemployment stays in step with this trend surging to 9% from just 3% at this time last year. The good news: organizations are hiring this specific demographic with identified military-trained skill sets, and they need to fill jobs NOW. Industries such as distribution, supply chain, logistics, e-commerce, data storage/broadband, pharmaceuticals, and select retail are just a few of the business areas that are rapidly hiring and in large volumes.

Bradley-Morris/RecruitMilitary, a company built on a storied military-trained talent and leadership history, has been employing and recruiting veterans for nearly three decades. In response to COVID-19, the organization swiftly implemented virtual hiring events nationwide in just days. And today, the company is positioned to bring thousands of service members, veterans, and military spouses into the civilian workforce more than ever before. In April, Bradley-Morris/RecruitMilitary was appointed by the U.S. Army to provide all transition services to soldiers, veterans, and their families. This appointment’s timing is critical to serving the needs of transitioning soldiers and their families who are leaving the military and joining the civilian world amidst a global crisis. Bradley-Morris/RecruitMilitary also helps veterans and transitioning service members of ALL branches.
