Build Your Business by Helping US Veterans

Posted by on July 28, 2013 in News
HirePatriots.com  is a non-profit outreach for US veterans:Our conviction is that US businesses cannot solve US veteran unemployment on their own. They are doing an outstanding job, but there will never be enough open positions for qualified veterans. Despite US businesses’ valiant efforts US veteran unemployment still remains around 800,000 to one million. And many of these jobs do not pay enough for ’employed’ veterans to pay their bills.
So HirePatriots makes a way for US residents to pitch in and employ US veterans too, when they need help with chores and repairs. It has been tremendously successful! We began our One Day job board for residents to hire their local veterans and vet spouses in 2005 near Camp Pendleton Marine Base in Oceanside, CA. By 2006, 10,000 people a week were coming to HirePatriots and hiring veterans! So many that 1500 San Diego businesses got together and gave us the Visionary Award for stimulating the economy throughout San Diego County. We were also voted the Number 1 News story in the region for two years running. 

Now we are spreading this simple veteran hiring solution across the US into every state and in every community that has a military or veteran population. Our method is to create a customized HirePatriots website, a One Day and a Careers job board, and blogs for each location so that the businesses and residents in every community can personally identify with their own, local HirePatriots website. Then we show you how to manage your new HP website: Control content and post blogs. And we provide you with fliers, brochures and posters with your individual HirePatriots URL on them.
The next step is to get civilians and businesses to come to your HirePatriots site and post jobs. Chamber sundowners are perfect for this. After jobs are posted we then tell the local veterans. After that the synergy created by the numbers of people being helped in your community becomes a sensation. Residents and veterans tell their friends, who tell their friends and soon your HP website is one of the most popular Internet destinations in your area.
The popularity of your HirePatriots site will also generate the attention of your local and regional News media. TV, radio and newspapers will call and ask for interviews. We bring on veterans and business owners and residents with us to these media features. Their elated testimonies produce more traffic and more jobs. And more veterans are helped. Of course this widespread attention also expands the fame of any company, chamber or organization that sponsors that HirePatriots site.
Once we have established HirePatriots in an area then we can raise funds and host our other programs offered by our 501c3 non-profit, Patriotic Hearts: military marriage retreats, job fairs, transitional assistance, welcome home parties etc.
This is a very powerful Cause Marketing strategy for businesses, particularly if their business depends on the local military. It also creates new revenue streams for them if they desire.
If you would like to find out more about our one-of-a-kind program that is sweeping the nation, please give me a call and let’s talk.
At your service,

Hello, I'm Mark Baird and I founded Hire Patriots. My wife and I are 'helpers.' We are concerned about meeting the practical needs of our US veterans veterans and their families. We began a job board for local residents to post chores that they need help with. It has been very successful. Thousands of local US Military and veterans partially or entirely support themselves from our website. We are looking for others near US Military bases who would also like to have a HirePatriots.com website for their location. Find more information about our military programs at PatrioticHearts.org. And please make a contribution of any kind. Thank you.
