Hiring managers across our company are asked to complete training specific to hiring veterans. These managers have seen first-hand how we work with the USO transition program to help veterans see how they can transition to civilian life through a career at Blue Cross NC. Our hiring managers are trained to:
Look for transferable skills on each military resume
Ask behavioral awareness questions during interviews for veterans
Ask candidates about their military rank in their service organization’s structure
Follow veteran retention practices in the workplace
Our veteran’s mentorship program pairs Blue Cross NC employees with veterans in the community who were looking to launch their civilian careers. Mentors and mentees did resume writing to understand transferrable skills, build their LinkedIn profiles, and more.
