Why Hire Veterans?

For many organizations, hiring veterans is a game changer. Our nation’s veterans are the most hard working, motivated, and disciplined team players in the workforce. Veterans are ready, willing and able to bring their valuable technical skills and leadership experience from their military service to your organization now. The benefits of a military background:

  • Trained to give their personal best, especially under adverse conditions
  • Can handle hard work and pressure
  • Experienced in looking at the big picture and completing the “mission”
  • Receive world-class training
  • Are consummate team players
  • Understand working under organizational hierarchies and respect authority
  • Are familiar with quick turnaround and eficient mobilization
  • Experienced in looking at the big picture and completing the “mission”
  • Have a global and tech-savvy outlook
  • Have ingrained leadership skills and understand responsibility

The Challenge

Savvy companies want to hire veterans and veterans want to work for forward-thinking companies that tap into their wealth of experience. But often there’s a skills gap that makes it difficult to connect the dots. For many hiring managers, deciphering what makes up a veteran’s technical and professional experience can be complex. And veterans themselves often have trouble translating how their military experience translates to the civilian world. That’s where we come in.

  • “Veterans are very detail oriented and are accustomed to following standards and processes. IT companies look for people who are not only technically proficient but know how to follow change control processes and industry standards. Attention to detail is also highly desired in IT as a small mistake can have dramatic impacts on the availability, security, or resiliency of an IT service/asset. Veterans are the most highly trained sector to meet these needs.”

  • In the military I learned the basics: be on time, have a positive attitude, be coachable, adaptable and dependable.   If you follow the basics you will be successful in all that you do. I enjoy working for Entelligence because they value my skills and what I bring to the table. They give great support and are very responsive. Also, they have given me the opportunity to grow from a professional perspective and progress in my career.

  • My service in the military provided me with an opportunity to build my career.  I became very interested in IT when I saw the need for individuals with this skill set. Entelligence is very pro-military, and this is not always the case you find when looking for employment. I have felt totally accepted coming into a civilian position with this company. They welcomed me with open arms!

    Angela Ross, Veteran and Entelligence Employee

  • The military makes a habit of putting you in to situations where you need to figure things out. As a result, I have been able to develop critical thinking and problem-solving skills. This has truly helped me in this position.

    What I love about my position at Entelligence is that it was an excellent entry-level position to become specialized within IT and develop a career
