Although primarily written for a military job seeker audience, the U.S. News & World Report article The Power of the Veteran Brand When Job Searching also gives employers an idea of the extraordinary capabilities veterans bring to the civilian workplace. Peter A. Gudmundsson, President of Bradley-Morris’ subsidiary RecruitMilitary, lists certain attributes that military-experienced candidates have and should communicate to a hiring manager or recruiter:

  • Teamwork
  • Leadership
  • Personal Responsibility and Discipline
  • Toughness
  • Trainability
  • Mission Orientation

Gudmundsson tells his readers that it is up to each job seeker to remind employers of the strengths they offer. However, we encourage employers to be aware of these key transferable skills when considering solving their hiring challenges with military talent.
