Alpharetta, Ga. (PRWEB) September 08, 2014
Hire Heroes USA, a 501 c(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to helping veterans transform their military service into civilian success, has confirmed a total of 90 veterans hired in the past two weeks, including 54 during the week ending 23 August. The organization is on track to exceed over 1,500 confirmed hires in 2014.
Hire Heroes USA team members assist nearly 150 transitioning service members, veterans and their spouses each week through personalized, one-on-one career coaching. Trained transition specialists, over 80% who are veterans themselves, work with veterans to create resumes that translate their military experience into civilian terms, and develop effective job search, job application and interviewing techniques. Through program improvements, the organization has maintained this individualized model of service while decreasing the cost per hire 21% over the past year, from $2,861 to less than $2,250.
Brian Stann, Hire Heroes USA CEO and former Marine turned UFC Fighter, credits this success to the passion and commitment of the Hire Heroes team to serving veterans.
“We continue to improve because this mission is personal to us. We care deeply about this generation’s veterans, and feel that their transition into the civilian job market is vital to maintaining America as a great nation of opportunity.”
As COO Nathan Smith explains, Hire Heroes USA’s singular focus on helping veterans get jobs and commitment to efficient, results-driven programming, has lead the organization to be named a best-in-class program by Google, the Call of Duty Endowment and the USO.
“Over the past year, our exceptionally capable team took a nationally recognized, best in class program and made it 20% better. The results from the past few weeks are not an anomaly, but the predictable outcome of relentless process improvement and a singular focus on what we do best, which is putting service to work. Whether you are a veteran looking for outstanding personalized employment assistance, a company that wants to hire veterans, or a supporter that wants to contribute meaningfully to reduce veteran unemployment, Hire Heroes USA should be your next step.”
