MilitaryHire Skilled Trades Recruiting

Across the country, skilled trades businesses struggle to hire reliable employees. Meanwhile, veterans often complete their tour of duty and transition to civilian life without meaningful employment lined up. MilitaryHire's Skilled Trades Recruiting program solves both these problems.

Skilled Trades jobs are in demand. They do not require a college degree. They provide a clear career path from assistant/apprentice to licensed/certified professional and to senior levels beyond that. Skilled Trades jobs often pay as much as or more than many jobs requiring a college degree.

How does the skilled trades recruiting program work?

  • The first step is a call with your MilitaryHire recruiter to understand your trade and location preferences.
  • Your recruiter provides you with interview preparation materials. You use these to practice (practice, practice!) for your interviews.
  • Your recruiter coaches you on interview techniques.
  • Your recruiter conducts a video interview. This interview is recorded and shared with employers.
  • Your recruiter works with employers to schedule follow up video interviews with each employer interested in hiring you.
  • One or more employers extend an offer to hire you contingent on a clean background check and drug test.
  • MilitaryHire arranges your background check and drug test and shares the results with the employer.
  • You begin your new career!
