Transitioning service members and veterans attend Day One of the two-day Hiring Our Heroes transition summit at Fort Bragg, N.C.
  1. You’ll connect with veteran candidates before they leave active duty. The service members you’ll meet at the transition 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.
  2. The transitioning military and veteran candidates you’ll meet have the experience you’re seeking. 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 at Hurlburt Field are also poised to bring a wealth of technical skills into their civilian careers. Operational units at Hurlburt Field include a special operations group; fixed-wing and tilt-rotor aircraft squadrons; one of the Air Force’s largest maintenance groups; a mission support group that manages manpower, equipment, and supplies; a medical unit; and a host of smaller and support commands. If you’re hiring, you’re likely to find a candidate at Hurlburt Field with the experience your organization needs.
  3. It’s free. (Really!) There is never a cost to employers or job seekers to participate in a Hiring Our Heroes hiring event.
