If your company has a goal to hire military veterans, one way to achieve this objective is to earmark certain jobs for military vets. Doing this will enable you to focus your recruitment activities on filling those positions from the ranks of available veterans, helping you to avoid compromising your principles in times when it’s difficult to find the right workers. Here are some ways to do this effectively.
Management roles of any description in a veteran-friendly company are well suited to military veterans with officer
Setting aside positions specifically for the purpose of targeting veterans isn’t discriminatory, and federal government guidelines support giving preference to veteran candidates. You don’t need to guarantee a job will only go to a veteran, but you can add extra points for service if you use a scoring system. As long as you don’t hire a veteran to the detriment of another candidate, you’ll be on the right side of the law in this regard. Hiring becomes discriminatory, for example, when you choose a veteran candidate over a more qualified applicant who happens to be a member of an ethnic minority, a woman or an older person.
