McLean, VA – (September 1, 2020) – Military Times announced its Best for Vets: Employers 2020 rankings. DynCorp International has again been recognized by Military Times for the ninth consecutive year.
A valuable resource for veterans – and a coveted honor for employers across the country – the annual Military Times Best for Vets rankings are the result of a meticulous and thoughtful months-long evaluation process.
“There have been huge leaps-and-bounds improvements made by corporations,” said Mike Bianchi, a retired Army officer who is now the senior director for education and career training for Syracuse University’s Institute for Veterans and Military Families (IVMF). For example, companies these days are more aggressively seeking out veterans at job fairs and recruiting through apprenticeships. “They are understanding that they have to meet the veteran talent where the veteran talent is and not waiting for the veteran talent to come to them,” Bianchi said.
The success in recent years is evident in veterans unemployment figures, which have fallen steadily from their peak a decade ago. Even with this year’s spike in joblessness due to the coronavirus, unemployment among veterans remains lower than among their civilian counterparts.
In recent years, more companies are focused on not just hiring veterans but making sure the veterans who are hired succeed in the long term.
“It’s not about a job. It’s about a career. It’s about fit,” said Rosalinda Maury, who serves as IVMF’s director of research and analytics.
