Employers around the nation have continued to prioritize veteran hiring. Why? The answer is simple. Veterans are proven leaders with a mission-focused approach to work, adaptable to workplace needs, and most importantly, carry a strong work ethic wherever they go. With that said, it’s no wonder employers are vying to get in front of this diverse talent pool. What’s the first step? Telling candidates you’re veteran-friendly is one thing, but showing them is an entirely different action. Let’s take a peek at four employers who have gone the extra mile to showcase their support for our nation’s veterans and military spouses using Recruit Rooster’s Military Crosswalk platforms!

Headquartered in our nation’s capital and known for its emergency assistance, disaster relief, and disaster preparedness education, veterans are one of the key talent pools for this organization’s hiring and recruitment efforts.

Dive into the American Red Cross’s veteran career site to discover how they’ve designed it to better engage with military and veteran candidates through a mix of job options, career matching, military base search, and even an abundance of resources.
Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center
For over 130 years, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSKCC) has had one mission – battling cancer. This organization recognizes the value veterans have in the civilian workforce and ties their day-to-day activities into the mission-focused mindset of veterans through imagery and compelling bold statements. In addition to its military skills translator, MSKCC highlights its veteran employee resource group (ERG) and veteran talent community, allowing passive job seekers to stay connected to recruiters. To go the extra mile, MSKCC includes first-hand experience in the form of testimonial videos from their current veteran employees.
