The 1:1 Conversation – The Veteran Recruiting Tactic That Dramatically Increases Hires
Learn how to increase your veteran hiring numbers by implementing creative hiring initiatives that will allow managers to meet veterans one on one. When veterans have a chance to speak to a hiring manager in person, they are better able to translate their experience, demonstrate their professionalism and convince managers on why they need to hire more veterans overall. In my 3 ½ years working for the world’s largest biotech company I learned that when I could get a veteran in front of recruiters and hiring managers it drastically increased their chances of getting hired. These personal interactions helped to eliminate preconceived notions of veterans by allowing them to elaborate on their dense and diverse work history.
