Hiring Retired Military - How Military Candidates Are Ideal for Sales and Business Development

One of BMI's areas of focus is the placement of Junior Military Officers (JMOs) and Non-Commissioned Officers (NCOs) with Bachelor Degrees into Sales and Business Development positions. Employers have found that military-experienced job seekers have the drive and aptitude for successful sales careers. Corporate recruiters utilize BMI when sourcing newly transitioned candidates or when hiring retired military for sales / business development.

  • "This was an impressive group of 12 people (job candidates). The managerial/leadership experience obtained through their military career is something you can't find in the general business world until someone is 10 years into their career. Even if the skill set wasn't a perfect fit their ability to problem solve and lead would more than make up for that issue."

  • "The sales candidates were extremely well prepared on both our position and on our organization. Every candidate I met with was professional and very personable. If these types of candidates were at every Hiring Event I attended, I would be a very happy person! The representatives at Bradley-Morris really made the entire process very easy. I could not have asked for a better sales hiring process. Thanks for all your help!"

As former JMOs or NCOs, our candidates possess an unmatched work ethic and a desire to achieve the goals and objectives designated by your company.

Why should you use Bradley-Morris instead of another sales recruiting firm? At a Bradley-Morris hiring event, we will only present candidates that have specified that they want to work in sales positions. Additionally, Bradley-Morris only accepts top performing candidates that possess a Bachelors Degree (at a minimum) and have a proven track record of excellence. For companies hiring retired military and / or newly transitioning military, no other military recruiting firm offers this type of focused placement.

BMI recommends a base salary of at least $40,000 plus commission and a bonus/incentives plan for these sales candidates. Make plans to attend a Sales / Sales Management Conference at a location that is convenient to you.
