Benjamin Franklin nailed it when he said, "Fatigue is the best pillow." True story, Benny. There's nothing like pushing your body so far past exhaustion that you'd willingly, even longingly, take a nap on a concrete slab.
Sales. It’s a function that can be found in virtually every sector and one that is well-suited to veterans who understand people skills, leadership, and team motivation. After all, a company can have the best products and services in the world, but if it can’t convince people to purchase its product, then there is no profit or impact to be made. While those veterans who have a bachelor’s degree or higher or who have been trained in the recruiting, customer service, or public relations fields will have a bit of a competitive edge when looking for a sales role, some starting positions with these seven Hirepurpose partner companies offer training programs for motivated veterans who served in any occupational speciality. Veterans of all ranks and backgrounds should definitely take a look.
