Atlanta, Ga. – January 15, 2014 –With Recruiting America’s Brave, U.S. Security Associates (USA) is doing its part in the nationwide movement to help returning military personnel transition into the civilian workforce. Recruiting America’s Brave is USA’s hiring campaign targeting veterans and military spouses.
Ranked among the G.I. Jobs Top 100 Military Friendly Employers® for 2014, USA is recognized for its long-term commitment to military friendly employment practices. Since pledging to support the 100,000 Jobs Mission, USA has set new military hiring records. The company employs thousands of veterans already, and more veterans every day are taking advantage of opportunities to apply their military skills, benefit from top security company training and advance in careers as security service professionals.
Because those who enter the military often do so in order to protect the American way of life, safeguarding lives, assets and communities as a security officer is a natural transition and rewarding career path for many veterans.
The U.S. Chamber of Commerce said, “Hiring veterans and military spouses for your company isn’t just the right thing to do—it’s the smart thing to do.”
Hiring managers at USA agree; former military personnel are ideally matched for careers as security officers with USA, a company that shares many of the core values held by the military, including duty, integrity, honor, service and excellence.
USA is purposefully targeting veterans and military spouses for employment through Chamber of Commerce Hiring Our Heroes job fairs, RecruitMilitary expos and veteran outreach organizations like Warriors to Work, Employee Partnership of the Armed Forces and Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve.
Recruiting America’s Brave is a new initiative, but USA has a long, proud history of veteran hiring, dating back to 1955. USA’s President and CEO, Chuck Schneider, is a former U.S. Navy officer committed to putting military leadership and talent to work for his clients. Hiring veterans has been key to USA’s rise as one of America’s largest security companies.
“Because the people we hire are often the face of our company, delivering high-quality service starts with choosing the right candidates,” says Jill Weitz, USA’s Vice President of Human Resources. “Those who offer military experience also offer a history of diligence, reliability, and keen responsiveness, all of which are the makings of an exceptional security officer. We are proud to count many veterans among our workforce.”
