We see it all the time: Military career fairs on base typically seek out service members with advanced technical training or even a four-year degree.

At Hirepurpose, we strive to find roles that our 100+ hiring partners have available for those of you who may not have had the opportunity to pursue higher education outside of your military career fields. This series includes numerous roles for our brothers and sisters at the pointy end of the spear. All of the jobs below are hand-picked and dedicated to you — so read, click, and apply.
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.
Health care is an expanding field. Due to the recent increase in access to care for Americans, as well as an aging baby boomer population, employment in healthcare occupations is projected to grow 19% in the next eight years, adding about 2.3 million new jobs, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. That is much faster than the average for all occupations. And patient care is just one aspect of the healthcare industry. Veterans of all ranks who possess sales, administrative, public relations, or healthcare support training and experience will find their skills transferrable to stable, high-paying jobs in most of the country.
