Job Seeker FAQ
How do I know if it’s the right time to look for a civilian job?
Leaving the military is a big decision, and like most big decisions, it carries its own set of risks and rewards. If you’re considering this major step and want to understand your marketability on the civilian job market, the best thing you can do is reach out to our team of highly experienced recruiting experts, discuss the opportunities currently on the market and receive a Personalized Marketability Assessment. This assessment will cover your current career milestones, possible reasons to consider staying on active duty, and a snapshot of current job-seeker and client activity through Bradley-Morris so you know what to expect.
What kinds of companies does Bradley-Morris work with?
Bradley-Morris is a trusted partner for companies that have strong military development programs for their employees, many of which you would find among the Fortune 1000. We are also a trusted option for companies who don’t have an in-house military veteran recruiting program, but do have a need for the kind of leadership, discipline, work ethic and high-tech skills commonly found among former military service members. Bradley-Morris represents multinational corporations, as well as owner-operated medium-sized businesses across a variety of industries and nationwide geographic locations.
What makes Bradley-Morris different from other recruiting companies?
Access. With the largest candidate and client network of any military recruiting services firm, Bradley-Morris is able to create matches between clients and candidates that represent a level of access and reach that is unprecedented in the military hiring space. Our team of experts works tirelessly to refine our processes and procedures to ensure we constantly improve the way clients and candidates interact.
What kind of salary should I expect to receive through your process?
Our team of military transition experts will work with you to develop a solid understanding of your background, career goals and location preferences, and provide you with information about cost of living and average salaries given the parameters of your search. Because every job we match our candidates with is derived directly from their military background and key skills, we have found that candidates typically receive above-average offers through our service because we are able to put them in front of challenging, career-appropriate roles. We will disclose the client’s advertised compensation range for positions we represent before moving forward with the interview process, so candidates will not experience any surprises at the offer stage.

What happens after I register with Bradley-Morris?
After you’ve registered as a job seeker, our team of military-experienced recruiters will evaluate your background and preferences to determine if our services will benefit your civilian job search:
- You will be personally contacted by a member of the Bradley-Morris team. He/she will discuss four factors regarding your job search:
- Job: What do you want to do? What is your experience and what industries seek such skills? What makes for an exciting challenge?
- Location: How flexible are you when it comes to moving for the right job? Would you consider travel? Where are veterans currently in high demand?
- Salary: How much do you need to make in order to live comfortably? What salary range is realistic for your skillset?
- Availability: If active duty, where are you stationed? When is your leave date and, if currently residing in a foreign country, how quickly can you come back to the U.S.?
- Depending on your resume writing skills and interview experience, a candidate recruiter may guide you through various training resources. This is to ensure you are prepared for any upcoming job opportunities.
- If your skills match an open opportunity, you will receive job opportunity notifications via phone, email, and text message. If you respond ‘yes’ we will contact you to discuss how best to position you to win the opportunity.
*Please note, while we’ve placed thousands of satisfied transitioning service members and veterans over 25 years in business, our no cost services are not a fit for everyone. We encourage everyone to get in touch with us to find out if we can be a resource in their overall career search.

What if I am not interested in a certain position when it is offered? Is it all right to turn it down?
Not every job is going to meet your expectations. If you are not interested in a position, you are free to decline. We will continue to seek positions for you based on your skills and preferences.
What do I pay for your services?
As a military-experienced job seeker, you will not pay for any of the services Bradley-Morris provides. The employers we partner with compensate us for our ability to help them hire the most talented veterans on the job market (a fee that originates from an employer’s recruiting budget, separate from employees’ salaries).
How can I stay informed about open positions?
The majority of our positions will be posted on our website. You will be contacted directly with any “hot jobs” for which you are a match.
