Top Veteran Employers: Opportunity Category

career opportunity at top veteran employers

Veterans are trained for the line of duty. They have a unique skill set that exceeds more civilian-level jobs. In an effort to decrease unemployment and a lack of veteran employment opportunities, our service members work jobs that do not utilize their advanced skill set. The result is that veterans are underemployed based on the work that they are trained for and the work that they are currently performing.

The Opportunity category rounds those of the Top 110 Veteran Employers that have veteran employment opportunities for service members to apply their existing skills and have the opportunity to train on the job to increase their skill set. These employers have positions that fit our veteran members skillset impeccably or have programs to train our service members.
