My nephew visited yesterday and mentioned he’s begun his job search, after his Army sting post WPI. He’s looking for a position in Civil Engineering. After a tour in the Land o’Sand, I’d say he’s pretty much ready for anything.
This got me thinking. We hear so much about “I support our troops” but I haven’t heard that translated to “hire a vet.” Are we forgetting those who’ve sacrificed for our country? I hope not.
In the case of my nephew, why wouldn’t you want a guy who’s worked in an environment where mistakes landed you on the front page of the NY Times? A tour of duty has made him a proven leader of men, given him responsibility well beyond his years, and shown that he has what it takes to get the job done.
If you’ve got a slot open for a Civil Engineer or Project Manager, email me, and remember, there are lots of other deserving vets out there who could use an opportunity.
