rethink veteran hiring

The skills shortage is growing in technology and engineering, and it’s likely to continue into the near future. As many as four million cybersecurity and went unfilled in 2020 alone due to a lack of skilled talent. Meanwhile, the World Economic Forum labeled data analysts and machine learning specialists the most in-demand jobs worldwide. That’s bad news for any organization that needs qualified tech or engineering talent.  But the good news is that there’s another source of qualified, disciplined professionals your organization can tap to fill these roles. They’re Veterans, and Randstad can help you hire them like no one else. We can source highly skilled, ready-to-work Veteran talent or we can build highly trainable quality emerging talent teams.   

If there’s one single valuable asset military Veterans possess, it’s the ability to be trained. They are lifelong learners — experts at being trained, learning, adapting and continually evolving.

  • Veterans are far more likely than civilians to work in fields like engineering, science and technology.
  • They’re more likely than civilians to possess advanced degrees.  Those with bachelor’s degrees have 2.9x more total work experience than nonveterans with the same degree.
  • And since a successful military career requires them, Vets also have “soft” skills like focus, tenacity, grit and a dedication to lifelong learning.     

Not only is Randstad the world’s leading HR services and solutions provider, but we’re also a leader in helping organizations build and grow Veteran talent in their workforces.
