5 Ways Nesco Resource Supports Veterans in the Workforce

You can take soldiers out of the field, but you can never shake all the dust from their boots, nor the service from their souls. However, veterans are 37% more likely to be underemployed than nonveterans, according to a recent LinkedIn study.  

At Nesco Resource, we are excited about the discipline, diligence, and heart that our veterans bring to the workforce. We aide those returning to civilian life by delivering opportunities in the workforce to get them re-established and on the ground running. When you join our team of professionals, we will show you all that is possible with the talent you bring to our industry. We offer comprehensive career opportunities to fit your schedule- so veterans can focus on reintegrating into civilian life.    

1. Flexible work opportunities   

Nesco Resource offers flexible work opportunities to aide veterans in getting back to the workforce. We offer both short-term and long-term opportunities to fit your needs. We also support all shifts and a multitude of industries to encompass skill sets and career goals. We understand that the adjustment back will be challenging for many, and we want to help. Allowing our Veterans to be able to integrate back at their own pace is part of the key to their success.    

2. Opportunities for Advancement   

The same LinkedIn study mentioned earlier offers hope: veterans are 39% more likely to be promoted earlier than nonveterans. As a Nesco Associate, you will have the opportunity to develop your skillset and career while advancing at your own pace. It is important to recognize outstanding employees, and we focus on providing those who go above and beyond with chances to grow.  

We partner with clients who are eager to develop their teams. All you have to worry about is your success and we handle the rest. We provide all associates with online and remote opportunities for placement. We offer remote documentation, training and interviewing from the comfort of your home. In doing this, we offer veterans and all associates the opportunity to jump-start their career, while focusing on what is important to them.   

3. Resume Writing Support  

Nesco Resource offers resume writing support to veterans, aiding them in creating or refreshing their on-paper portfolio. We offer coaching to those who need a gentle nudge or full lessons of resume writing. We want Veterans to have the best opportunity presented to them for success. It is important that we honor those who have served and this is just one way we can return the favor to them.   

4. Interview Coaching  

Nesco Resource offers interview coaching for all associates to prepare them for the road ahead. We offer support and guidance for all candidates and associates to prepare them for upcoming interviews. From questions and responses, planning and scheduling and client-specific information to what to wear- we prepare you from head to toe for interviews!   

5. Risk & Safety Training  

Many veterans are no stranger to day-to-day risks. However, some workplaces offer challenges that veterans may be unfamiliar with. That’s why we have dedicated risk and safety resources who can help prepare you for unexpected scenarios on the job. Our risk and safety team works hard to ensure workplace safety is the first priority. We offer training for associates for proper PPE to wear on the job, onsite safety training from clients and safety resources for you to use at any time. We also encourage our employees to reach out with safety questions or concerns.   

Work with a staffing partner who values you  

We support our Veterans at Nesco Resource. Whether it is flexible work accommodations, aiding in resume writing or assisting in reintegration back to civilian life, Nesco focuses on giving back to those who have given their time and lives for us. We offer customized opportunities for all veterans and their families. With our career opportunities and solutions, we provide Veterans with the support they need to get back on their feet and into the workforce, while sharing in their success and thanking them for their service.
