DEAR READERS: Every year for the holidays we offer a gift to transitioning service members and veterans looking for meaningful civilian careers: The Military Friend- ly ® Employers * . These organizations go well above and beyond in recruit- ing, hiring, onboarding and retaining America's veterans and their families. They excel at helping you succeed. Each spring we provide another gift tied closely to the first: The Top 25 Hot Jobs for Veterans™. Every Military Friendly ® Employer (MFE) is asked to list the top 10 jobs they are recruiting veterans for. We take that data from more than 200 Military Friendly ® Employers and create the Top 25 Hot Jobs for Veterans™. The verdict is in: The Military Friendly ® Employers are looking for leaders. The top job this year is opera- tions manager, and four other jobs include "supervisor" in the title. Computer-related jobs are well- represented on this year's list. If this was your specialty in the military, you should have no problem finding a rewarding career with an MFE. If you like more physical work, the list includes plenty of options. There are careers as automotive and aircraft technicians, welders, electricians, diesel engine specialists, construction technicians, CDL drivers and more. If you want to drive a desk in corporate America, the Military Friendly ® Employers offer careers in human resources, sales, financial services, accounting and customer service. Beginning on page 10, you'll find a summary of each hot job, the annual median salary, job growth projection and similar titles you might see from other employers. Your dream career just might be on this year's list. In this issue we also focus on careers for veterans in retail and health services. And we spotlight a courageous young Marine who didn't let life-threatening wounds slow him down. You'll find his inspiring story on page 52. Thanks for reading G.I. Jobs.
