It is widely known that military service provides a amazing opportunity for individuals to gain specialized skills and unique knowledge while serving our country. From technical skills to administration, from mechanical and engineering to supply chain and inventory management the military provides comprehensive and ongoing training to it’s personnel. Transitioning from a military career to the corporate world can be a fraught process for the 360,000 veterans who leave the service each year. In addition to networking their way into new professional circles and learning new cultural mores, veterans have to face down the even more fundamental questions: what career will best suit them? And once they know what they want, how can they convince a company hiring managers that their skills will translate — especially if they’re not quite sure they will? Infotech Sourcing is looking for people with specialized training skills. Infotech Sourcing’s employers are seeking highly skilled veterans who have a proven track record of dedication, discipline, hard work ethic and teaming and organizational skills that only the military can provide.
