When hiring personnel, employers often overlook military veterans, one of the most talented pools of potential employees. In addition to receiving training in a wide range of skill sets, these individuals possess excellent leadership abilities and strong work ethics. In addition, the federal government offers tax benefits to employers for hiring veterans.

While veterans possess diverse skills, they are often well-suited for particular industries based on their experience in the armed forces. Health-care providers can benefit from the unique experience of battlefield medics, and engineering firms can find veterans who have significant experience in electric and mechanical construction. Other fields well suited for veterans with specialized training include security, federal government, supply-chain logistics, and information technology.
