As our nation turns increasingly rich in diversity, so must our workforce. Today's employers are embracing the hiring of candidates that bring to the workforce layers of unique perspective and experiences. Employers are fully aware that differences create pillars of strength in any worthwhile business, and the best employers proactively seek it.
As job seekers, it is important to have a good understanding that you bring qualities and skills that employers are looking for. Veterans and candidates with disabilities add unique context and skill sets to a company's repertoire. Our government also encourages this kind of hiring to diversify the workforce.
We encourage you to explore our Diversity Exchanges and find a wealth of resources to assist with your job search. Best Wishes!
