In Advance of Memorial Day, Get to Know Veterans ASCEND

You’ve no doubt heard that employers are struggling to fill jobs. But did you know that 75% of applicants never reach a human being. For veterans and military spouses, it’s 95% that never reach a human being when applying for jobs online.

Employers are struggling to find talent to fill jobs. According to ManpowerGroup’s 2019/2020 Talent Shortage Survey, 69 percent of U.S. employers are having difficulty filling jobs. 40% of these employers cited sourcing candidates as the biggest barrier.

Employers know military veterans have incredible experience. However, it is still hard for a hiring manager to understand how they will get up to speed fast enough for their company. Yet military members have spent their careers going from assignment to assignment, getting up to speed, and delivering quickly. And they bring the skills associated with that experience forward.
