Happy Veteran's Day!
Posted By: Blogpost


Here at QPS Employment Group, we honor and recognize America's veterans for their patriotism and willingness to serve and sacrifice for the common good. To help give back to those that have given so much for our country, QPS Employment Group encourages veterans looking for job opportunities to apply with us and for companies looking for skilled workers to look at veterans to help bridge the skills gap.

With the skills gap plaguing the entire nation with 300,000 unfilled manufacturing jobs, veterans are a greatly underutilized resource to help fix the gap. The unemployment rate for veterans is currently at 4.5 percent as of October. Even though the unemployment rate for veterans overall is lower than the national unemployment rate of 5.8 percent, there is still a lot of room to improve with veterans who have served since 9/11 as their unemployment rate is at a staggering 9 percent.

Veterans carry an array of transferable skills and experiences that the general public does not typically have. They have the proven ability to adapt to different environments and learn skills quickly. They understand the importance of leadership, training, problem solving, and working in teams. Veterans have the technical skills needed because of the advanced training they have received that can be transferred to working in a manufacturing setting.

The high unemployment rate for veterans can be attributed to the cultural gap for veterans that are used to different jargon and structure in the military. Employers often have difficulty understanding what veterans did in the military and how their skills can be transferable to their company. QPS Employment Group has skilled and experienced recruiters to help place skilled veterans that may have been overlooked in filling positions due to the cultural gap.
