A Complete Guide to Veteran Hiring for Employers, HR, and Today's Transitioning Veterans
A quarter of a million service members transition from the military each year to the civilian workforce, and though much has been written, studied, and researched about the challenges of employing veterans, bridging the divide between the We Will environment of the military and the At Will reality of the private sector can be daunting.
With expert recommendations and insights, real-world case studies, and state-of-the-art resources and tools, From WE WILL to AT WILL demystifies the culture and mind-set of today's veterans, presents the business case for hiring veterans, shows how to manage the hiring process, and provides a clear road-map to navigate the path from veteran-friendly to veteran-ready.
