In many parts of New York employers are not aware of Hire Patriots but that is starting to change. In New York City NBC Nightly News last week aired a special on Hire Patriots and at the other end of the state in Buffalo the Buffalo Law Journal had a front page article by Matt Chandler titled “Hiring Veterans not just Patriotic”. This local and national attention has created some serious interest from employers and veteran supporters. Employers love to hire veterans because of their work ethic, organizational skills and the reduced turnover they experience in their business. Hire Patriots job postings start at only $25.00 and the board is a free resource for veterans to find a job.
The article also mentions Buffalo attorney Joseph Hanna. Joseph is the founder and president of Bunkers in Bagdad, a non-profit that provides golf equipment to veteran and soldiers worldwide for recreational and rehabilitative use. Joseph states in the article that “If hiring a veteran sounds like a charitable effort, nothing could be further from the truth. In working with these individuals on many levels their work ethic is like no other. They are committed to their jobs and to presenting the most perfect product possible every day. There is no 9-5 in these veterans.” How can I add to that? Joseph said it all.
Please pass this along to your employer and veteran circles. Thank you.
