While quickly and cost-efficiently finding qualified veterans to fill your open positions is your goal, it takes particular tools to accomplish. You ideally want to source from the most qualified candidates on an easy-to-use platform that will help you speed up your time to hire and increase ROI with the right hire.
Here, we’ll break down three surefire ways to broaden your knowledge on the veteran hiring front and ensure you’re finding top veteran talent in the most efficient way possible.
Get on board with job boards.
Posting your open jobs on military job boards is a cost-efficient and easy way to inform veterans that you’re a veteran-friendly employer that is looking to offer them a civilian role relevant to their skillset. Websites like Military.comand HelmetstoHardhats.org are great places to tap into a pool of vets looking for jobs. Furthermore, on most military job boards, posting a job is free of charge.
Tap into transition-ready vets.
Connecting with veterans is one thing; finding more qualified vets is another. You can simplify and speed up your search for the best vets for the job via transition support sites. For example, Workforwarriors.org is a site that takes a personal approach to helping veterans transition into the workforce through dedicated transition assistance and access to veteran-friendly companies hiring. If you’re one of those companies, you’ll be able to tap into a pool of transition-ready vets that are ready and able to dominate your civilian roles. When considering costs and retention, this route simply makes sense.
Guarantee ideal fits.
Transition-ready veterans are solid candidates, but if you want to increase efficiency and efficacy of your job placements even more, consider a veteran-talent acquisition platform that provides you a pool of veterans that have been pre-vetted. This means they’re the most qualified veteran candidates out there. Why? Their military experience has been translated by veterans to correlate with the skills and experiences required in your open positions. Not only is their experience easier for you to understand, but you will have access to more qualified candidates that fit your roles. Quickly sourcing from top talent can reduce cost to hire and attrition, which will impress leadership and make your hiring process a whole lot easier.
