Hiring Our Heroes

Through world-class hiring events, digital programs, and internships, Hiring Our Heroes connects businesses with accomplished individuals from the military community who are ready to work.

One of the easiest ways to connect with military job seekers is to attend one of our Career Summits.

You connect with veterans before they leave active duty. 

The service members you’ll meet at the career summit will include those just weeks away from transitioning out of the military as well as service members 12 to 18 months away from their transition to civilian employment. That means whether you’re looking to fill current openings or are seeking candidates for a longer hiring pipeline, you’ll find quality candidates who fit the bill.

Transitioning service members have the experience you’re seeking for your workplace.

You already know that veterans bring well-developed soft skills – including self-discipline, teamwork, leadership, and loyalty – to their post-military careers. The military service members you’ll meet are also poised to bring a wealth of technical skills into their civilian careers. If you’re hiring, you’re likely to find a candidate at a military installation with the experience your organization needs.

It’s free. (Really!) 

There is never a cost to employers or job seekers to participate in a Hiring Our Heroes hiring event.

Employers may connect with transitioning service member, veteran, and military spouse candidates at in-person Career Summits hosted on military installations throughout the nation. Registration for upcoming events is opened on a rolling basis, so please check the Event Calendar often.
