Transitioning Military

Veteran talent is exceptional talent. The 245,000 individuals who transition from military service each year represent a diverse group of highly trained people who are unusually capable of taking on difficult and challenging roles. According to a recent Korn Ferry study, young military leaders who enter your industry are more likely to make the C-suite than any other single demographic.

Military candidates have a unique set of hiring needs that organizations should ensure they are properly equipped to meet. What are the most effective ways to reach out to Veteran talent? What support should you offer to help them transition to civilian roles? Is there anything you can do to increase retention rates, given that 43% of Veterans leave their first position within a year?

Our all-Veteran recruiting team provides you with the experience, insights and tools you need to identify and attract the right Veteran talent for your business, and helps make every transition a success. We start by developing a deep understanding of your organization’s requirements before partnering with your team to design a Veteran talent program that is tailored to deliver optimum results. This includes identifying the roles best suited to military hires and addressing potential knowledge gaps in Veteran candidates. Our services incorporate proven strategies around recruitment, assessment, coaching and training. We also offer a Talent Ready model, which involves helping transitioning Veterans develop skills and certifications in in-demand fields like cyber.


We offer a comprehensive solution. Our Veteran solution goes well beyond talent acquisition to include training, coaching and retention strategies. We are your partner for all aspects of Veteran talent.

We care about quality. Replacing an employee can cost more than double their salary. We focus on helping you find, engage and retain the right candidate for every role.

We are committed to Veterans. We help military candidates transition successfully by giving them the tools and support they need to make their new role a success.

We deliver results. Veterans hired using talent assessments are more likely to stay and be promoted.
