I thought that it was only fair that I look at an article from a different point of view than my research question poses. This article shows the reasons that hiring a veteran might not be the best thing to do for your business. Since 2020, the rate of unemployed veterans has only risen. The article also points out several reasons why it is good to hire veterans such as them having almost three times the amount of experience working than the average citizen. One of the largest reasons that veterans don’t hire veterans is misconceptions about them Employers do not know enough about the experience or training that the veterans have gone through and the military does not teach transferable skills to their soldiers. The article also lists several ways that veterans can avoid these misconceptions such as writing a good resume and having a good connection with the civilian workforce. This article also links several places where veterans can access good resume-building websites which is very helpful.
