ATLANTA – May 30, 2014 – U.S. Security Associates (USA) announces upcoming job fairs and a new partnership program, all targeted toward recruitment of military veterans and spouses. The national security company is partnering with RecruitMilitary, the top military-to-civilian recruiting firm in the United States, and Military Spouse Employment Partnership (MSEP), a division of the DoD's Spouse Education and Career Opportunities program, to connect both veterans and military spouses with security careers.
USA's pledge of support for MSEP – a written commitment to identifying and promoting favorable career opportunities for military spouses – is the most recent initiative in Recruiting America's Brave, the company's large-scale hiring campaign targeting veterans and military spouses. USA has continuously ramped up veteran hiring efforts since joining the 100,000 Jobs Mission, a coalition formed in 2011 to combat the high unemployment rate of veterans, especially those returning from Iran and Afghanistan. USA actively targets veterans, reservists, and their spouses through partnerships with organizations like the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve, Warriors to Work, RecruitMilitary, and now MSEP.
From now through December, USA is participating in a series of RecruitMilitary Veteran Job Fairs that kicks off on June 26 at the Georgia Dome in the company's hometown of Atlanta. USA is exhibiting at fairs taking place in these major military markets:
USA's recruiting tour follows on the heels of media attention surrounding the company's ranking on the G.I. Jobs Top 100 Military Friendly Employers® list for 2014. G.I. Jobs selects the top-ranked military friendly organizations based on a categorical evaluation of each company's long-term commitment to employing veterans. 2014 is the second year in a row that G.I. Jobs has recognized USA as one of the nation's leading military friendly employers.
Jill Weitz, Vice President of USA's Human Resources department, describes partnerships with MSEP and RecruitMilitary as mutually rewarding for employers and job-seekers. "Through these organizations, transitioning personnel are exposed to opportunities for fulfilling post-military careers, and employers have a direct line to high-integrity individuals who have already proven their ability to meet rigorous standards. At USA, we consider ourselves fortunate to hire from this highly skilled and qualified applicant pool."
