42 G.I. JOBS | AUGUST 2018 | GIJOBS.COM GIJOBS.COM G.I. JOBS | AUGUST 2018 | 42 INDUSTRY INTEL BUSINESS SERVICES BY STEPHANIE MONTAGUE WHAT THE HECK IS BUSINESS SERVICES? Businesses that serve other businesses recruit veterans for a long list of occupations. LOOKING TO START A CAREER in a high- growth industry that offers a broad range of opportunities and high salaries? Look no further than the business services industry. If the term "business services" sounds general, that's because it encompasses a lot of different areas. Companies in this industry support other companies with everything from information technology and financial consulting to logistics and shipping. For veterans seeking employment in business services, that diversity means you have many opportunities to make use of the wide range of skills and experience you gained in the military. One major benefit of the business services industry is the significant earning potential. Many of the jobs in greatest demand have an average salary of more than $90,000 per year. The outlook is even brighter if you're the technical type; positions in cybersecurity and software development not only pay well, but are projected to grow by more than 20 percent over the next decade. If a "desk job" is not your thing, you can still find a career in this growing industry. The first step is finding Military Friendly ® Employers who are looking for ways to match your skills with their needs. James Tongate, Marsh & McLennan's Military & Veterans Affairs program manager explains, "We recognize that veterans possess skills and perspectives that are tremendously valuable to our company, such as resiliency, team-building expertise, cross-cultural fluency, and leadership." Many companies in the business services industry have specific programs designed to recruit and train veterans. For example, United Rentals * partners with Workforce Opportunity Services to offer a service technician training program specifically for veterans, reservists and members of the National Guard.
