Veterans Are Being Told: 'We Don't Hire Your Kind'


by Shaun So, Contributorhire a vet

If you read my blog regularly, you’re well aware of my stance on corporations and some of the lackluster veteran hiring initiatives. Although some companies are doing their best, I’ve found that many companies appear to use “We Hire Veterans” campaigns as marketing and public relations ploys to boost their public images. When I contact companies to inquire about their initiatives, I’m always referred to someone in the marketing department, rather than human resources. Shouldn’t I be talking to the people actually filtering through resumes?
I always suspect that this disconnect would not play out too well for us veterans in the long run.
So it’s upsetting, but not surprising, that I read the following post from a recently separated Air Force Veteran named Melissa W. (this has been edited with her permission) in the ‘Veteran Mentor Network” LinkedIn LNKD -1.06%message board:



If you are an unemployed veteran and currently seeking for a job, visit and post your resume.
