Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) July 13, 2008
Bradley-Morris, Inc. (BMI), the largest military to civilian placement firm in the U.S., was recently featured in an article in The Virginian-Pilot, a newspaper serving the Norfolk and Hampton Roads areas of Virginia (click here for full article). The piece is entitled "Service members are in demand in the private sector" and highlights the free job seeker services that exist for transitioning and prior-military.
BMI's Principal and VP of Client Services, Tim Best, was interviewed for the article. When asked to describe the key attributes that civilian employers find in military-experienced candidates, Best said, "They have a mission-accomplishment approach. It's not uncommon for them to spend a day of nonstop work, and very little rest, because they have to get a job done. They have the mentality, 'I don't have to have dinner right now; I need to finish this.'"
One of Bradley-Morris' Norfolk-area clients was also featured in the piece. Describing their interaction with BMI, Melissa Griffin, human resources manager at Electric Motor & Contracting Co., Inc. discussed signing up with the military to civilian firm after Electric Motor's positions became harder to fill, saying: "I gave them the job description, not expecting a whole lot back. Within two days, they sent me a resume. The very first resume, we hired that person."
She went on to describe how working with BMI has made a positive impact for her company, and made her life easier as well, declaring, "I tell them what I need; they do all of the legwork. That's been a huge plus."
