In today’s world it can be hard to find good, quality, responsible employees to hire in machine shops and manufacturing plants. Many people don’t realize a viable long-term career is available for them in these industries. Hiring managers often have to think out of the box to find people who would be good employees for them. In our blog last month we discussed the need for more qualified workers. This month we want to talk about the group that is often overlooked when it comes to hiring and that is our great veterans, who served our country so well.
Veterans of the armed forces coming home from active duty many times do not know what they are going to do when they transition back to everyday life. They have spent years in the service where their everyday life was planned and organized for them. In the armed forces they have learned skills that made them successful in the military, to me it is obvious in how they can transfer to a better life after the military. Many times they do not have college degrees, which may be necessary for working in an office job, and that can put them at a disadvantage. At Mid-West Screw we believe these skills they have developed could be easily transferred over to working in the machining industry and at machine shops, making them great candidates for employment.
Hiring managers are always looking for people who have the skills and ability to be successful in their organization. Veterans are a group that has the characteristics these managers are looking for. These traits include the ability to follow orders and directions, the willingness to take on tasks; is extremely capable to work under pressure and the mindset of the importance of doing a good job. They are used to working in a team environment to complete tasks and goals, and understand the need to go the extra mile to make sure their work is done at the highest level of acceptance.
Here at Mid-West Screw we want to hire veterans to come work for us. We are thankful for all they have done for us and think they would be an asset to our company. They will make our company better, and we think the manufacturing and machining industry, as a whole, should be looking at veterans as prime candidates to fill their employment needs. Please contact us if you are a veteran, of the armed forces, looking for a job or career, we would love to speak with you
