National Hire A Veteran Day Demonstrates Need for Employment Support for Veterans Seeking a Civilian Career after Military Service
CHESAPEAKE, Va., July 26, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — RecruitMilitary, the nation’s leading veteran recruitment firm, has joined forces with American Corporate Partners (ACP), a national non-profit that offers a customized mentorship program to veterans and active duty military spouses, to empower transitioning military service members and their families with employment and career counseling opportunities in the civilian workforce. The two organizations announced their partnership around July 25, National Hire a Veteran Day, that they are synchronizing efforts to bring the best career support resources to veterans and their families while providing America’s employers with the ability to recruit and work with top talent that originates from our nation’s military.

The program focuses on a holistic approach to determine the mentorship needs and career goals of each Protégé and provides seasoned guidance from Mentors that offer exposure to opportunities and networks aligned with specific career interests and capabilities.
“We are thrilled to partner with ACP in a way that aligns with our passion of empowering veterans with employment opportunities,” said RecruitMilitary CEO Tim Best. “Providing veterans with access to customized mentorships helps us better-reach and understand the needs of job seekers and optimize the resources available to them. This partnership is truly a win-win for career seeking veterans.”
