DEAR READERS: Have you ever wondered which in- dustries offer the most opportunities to veterans? We did too. This spring we decided to find out, so we dug into the 2018 class of 237 Military Friendly ® Employers to see which industries boast the largest numbers of these elite employers. Then our team looked at government and pri- vate sector data to see which of those industries were growing the fastest and promise sustained growth. The result is the 2018 Hot Industries for Veterans. These six industries represent 127 of the 2018 Military Friendly ® Employers operat- ing in thriving sectors that offer job security and good salaries. Begin- ning on page 18, you'll find a sum- mary of the industry and why it's hot, along with a list of the top jobs the Military Friendly ® Employers in that sector are recruiting veterans for. We include a snapshot of the top- ranked job as well. Any conversation about thriv- ing occupations must include IT specialists. On page 10 we outline a free program that trains veterans for careers in IT in a matter of weeks. It prepares them for certification test- ing that will help open the doors to this in-demand career path. If you're a NASCAR fan – and even if you're not – you'll love our feature on Tim Clark, a former tanker who used the soft skills he learned as an Army E-4 to climb the corporate lad- der to vice president of digital media at NASCAR. He shares his story and advice for you on page 14. Finally, if you've ever wondered what wholesale trade is all about, we offer an overview on page 28 and talk to a veteran who found his dream job as a broker in this behind- the-scenes sector. We don't have have the space to print all of the great content our team produces, so if you want to see more be sure to visit GIJobs.com for endless resources to help ease your transition back to the civilian world.
