8 G.I. JOBS | DECEMBER 2018 | GIJOBS.COM EVERY ISSUE MONTHLY MUSTER DEAR READERS: Transitioning from active duty to civilian life comes with many choic- es. What career should I pursue? What education or training do I need? Where should we live? What employers in my chosen career field truly "get it" when it comes to America's veterans? WE get it. Many of us are veter- ans who made that same transition, and we're now devoted to clearing the road for you. One of the ways we help fellow veterans is by identi- fying the organizations that do the most to help military and prior military succeed. Simply put, which employers are better for veterans? We've been doing it for 16 years, and we've found a common denom- inator. The motivation for the vast majority of organizations desig- nated Military Friendly ® goes well beyond patriotism and flag-waving. They invest heavily in recruiting, onboarding, mentoring and advanc- ing military and veteran employees because they recognize that you are good for the bottom line. You only need the right opportunity and cul- ture in which to thrive. Simply put, you need a hand up – not a handout. The 2019 class of Military Friendly ® Employers is no excep- tion. They earned their designation by proving through an exhaustive proprietary survey and public data that they have a demonstrable track record of helping veterans and their families succeed. The dedication to building long-term, sustainable military programs comes from recognizing the impact veterans and their families have on the bottom line, long after the parades, flag-wav- ing and hand-shaking have faded into history. You need to know that the 226 organizations presented on the following pages are offering you a hand up, a chance to apply the soft skills you honed in the military – leadership, discipline, mission-focus and more – to excellence in the civil- ian workforce. Make the most of it. A HAND UP, NOT A HANDOUT Mike Stevens Publisher 13th Master Chief Petty Officer of the Navy (Ret.)
