They are emotionally mature, goal-oriented, mission-driven,
experienced leaders. They work tirelessly to achieve their objectives
and look for ways to make meaningful contributions. They are
self-sufficient; they will only ask questions when they cannot find the
answers themselves. They not only understand the concept of sacrifice
for the greater good, they’ve lived it. They are respectful and
protective of those around them. They think globally and bypass most
things trivial or trendy.


In short, they are the kind of role models we need on our
campuses, and graduating to lives of fulfillment in our workplaces. With
your support, their academic success can allow them to become some of
America’s strongest, most insightful leaders. We owe them our gratitude,
of course. But more importantly, we owe them a chance to have
meaningful new careers and fulfilling civilian lives, from which we will
all richly benefit.

I completely agree but my question is how do I find them? I've got many friends that are looking to hire veterans and I'm currently trying to find some talent but have no idea how to reach them.

I would recommend LinkedIn ad checking out groups like Veteran Mentor Network and Military to Civilian Transitioners. Post about the jobs you can offer. Also, if you're active on twitter, start posting these jobs on a regular basis and ask people to retweet. It'll get out there. Good luck!

But you know what. Those traits scare employers. I am like that. I have been laid PFF by so many jobs. I am better self employef

Try telling that to the potential employers that will benefit from these highly trained, disciplined newly degreed job hunters who would bring so much to the table, but they don't really care. If they did, the veteran unemployment rate wouldn't be double the national rate.
