About This Session
Veteran unemployment rates are at an all-time low thanks to the many employers around the nation who actively seek out transitioning servicemen and women, and their families, by providing them with meaningful employment opportunities. While we still have a way to go, David Muir, Jr. from Easter Seals Veteran Staffing Network, will help attendees gain understanding of the veteran candidate profile, and the cultural difference between corporate and military workforces. During this session, David will also provide insight regarding marketing to and evaluating military candidates, while also identifying cost effective programs for better employee retention when it comes to veteran new hires.
