The How, Why, What & When of HirePatriots

Posted by on in News
Friends, Here is information about who we are and what we do. Then I have included a barebones budget at the bottom.   HirePatriots.com started as HireMarines.com. A US Marine knocked on our door desperate to get the utilities turned back on in his house for himself, his wife and their two, small children. We started HireMarines, a simple One Day job board, expecting a dozen jobs a month. Instead, we got 10,000 people a week who visited our job board! --Immediately our website ranked in the top 1% of all US and global websites.   We saw this as a...

Turning Weakness Into Strength

Posted by on in Guest
Turning Weakness Into Strength, One Foot At a Time Excerpted from the new book At Home Recovery Handbook by Keith Angelin I am fascinated by the story described in Matthew 14:28-30 of Peter walking on water: 28 “Lord, if it’s you,” Peter replied, “tell me to come to you on the water.” 29 “Come,” he said. Then Peter got down out of the boat, walked on the water and came toward Jesus. 30 But when he saw the wind, he was afraid and, beginning to sink, cried out, “Lord, save me!” Pretend for a moment that Jesus is back in town. He's performing all...

For over 30 years, I have treated clients with PTSD. I received an MA in Psychology. I also trained at U.C. Medical Center in San Francisco to become a Certified Sex Therapist. I have worked at hospitals, clinics, abused women centers, the welfare department, and inner-city boys clubs. These experiences gave me insight that there was not a “one size fits all” approach. The method I use is Cognitive Behavioral Theory. It enables the Therapist to facilitate coping skills that are appropriate for each client. Symptoms make sense once the underlying causes are identified and the negative emotions are brought into...

Why Veterans Should Move to Texas

Posted by on in Jobs For Veterans
The purpose of this blog post is to encourage job seeking US veterans to move to Texas. HirePatriots is working with multiple companies in Texas that eagerly want to hire America’s former military. But here in California it is often difficult to convince them to move. For instance, there is a company in Houston, Texas that wants to hire 50 US veterans immediately to drive cement trucks. The average salary is $60,000+. -- US veterans should take a serious look at this opportunity and make that move. Here are some great reasons: It's cheaper: Texas has the highest 'effective' pay check...

Veterans Unemployment Problem

Posted by on in Jobs For Veterans
 Young Veterans Unemployed  It's ashamed what happening with our young veterans in today market. Given the risks they endure, it is troubling to think that many military veterans are having trouble entering the civilian labor market. While older veterans typically earn more and have similar employment rates as non-veterans in their same age group, that’s not true for younger veterans.  Unemployment Rate In 2013, the unemployment rate for young veterans aged 25-34 was 9.1 percent, compared to 7.4 for non-veterans in the same age group. This is the cohort that enlisted after September 11, 2001 and some risked their lives in the...
