Wanted: Military Vets for Good Management Jobs
March 6, 2013
Companies like AT&T, 7-Eleven, Amazon, Capital One and Lowe's are making a push to hire some of the young, unemployed 250,000 veterans who have served since 9/11.
Corporations are actively recruiting young veterans from infantry ranks and elsewhere for management or team-leading positions, according to a survey of Fortune 1000 companies to be published in G.I. Jobs Magazine.
Businesses say they value skills for operating within a chain of command and for handling mission-focused tasks, according to the survey done by Victory Media, which owns G.I. Jobs. Survey results, running in the magazine's April issue and published online Wednesday, were provided to USA TODAY.
