Wisconsin helps veterans translate their skills to a post-military career
Thursday, December 06, 2018
It’s no secret that former service members make some of the best employees in the workforce.
Those transitioning out of the military possess qualities that every employer is looking for, including leadership; flexibility; adaptability; the ability to work as both a team leader and a team member; the aptitude to work under pressure and meet deadlines; the ability to follow directions in an appropriate manner; planning and organizational skills; a strong commitment to working safely; and so much more.
Given its long history of manufacturing leadership and continued innovation in fields that are driving global commerce, Wisconsin provides thousands of jobs that align well with military training, and many employers in the state give preference and incentives to veterans. Foxconn, for example, is creating up to 13,000 new jobs and is committed to hiring 3,000 veterans to help fill those positions.
