Hire Our Heroes

Members of the AARC’s Military Roundtable learned some great news over the weekend. Thanks to an organization that supports our vets, active duty military personnel who are getting ready to transition back into the civilian world are now getting some much welcomed help when it comes to finding a job.

In order to make it easier for more employers hire these military vets, Hire our Heroes (HOH) is partnering with the Armed Forces Foundation to provide free, roundtrip airfare to any transitioning vet who would like to go on a job interview anywhere in the country. The hope is that by funding the travel associated with interviewing for jobs, more employers will be willing to consider these returning heroes for their open positions.

So if you are a military RT who’s getting ready to transition back to civilian life, go the HOH’s Transitioning Veterans Fly Free for Job Interviews webpage and learn more about how you can acquire free airfare to travel to a job interview.

If you want to keep up with this great program and other news and information related to military members of the AARC, join our Military Roundtable. The Roundtable is made up of military members, veterans of service, and those who want to support these heroes in our profession.

Roundtable membership is available at no extra cost to AARC members.
