Helping veterans make the transition to civilian life through careers at Blue Cross NC

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.

"I am so proud to be a U.S. Navy veteran. That experience gave me the confidence to believe I could do anything I set my mind to. I've had great opportunities here at Blue Cross NC. I started in customer service, became a business analyst, then to informatics, followed by program management. I have an equally awesome team. We have even been skydiving together!"
Sherry Mullies
Lead Program Manager
"The primary skills I gained in the Air Force were time management and the ability to effectively work as part of a team. The military is very team-focused, so the ability to focus on a common goal and work as part of a larger team has been critical in my role at Blue Cross NC.  The military also trained me how to effectively prioritize my work, delegate to others, and creatively problem solve which are additional skills I’ve been able to leverage to be successful at our organization."
Michael Ferrell

Serving veterans in the community

VetNet leads and supports a number of military and veteran fundraisers and collection drives.

  • The Valor Games Southeast. We volunteer at this and other annual competitions for veterans and members of the Armed Forces with disabilities. 
  • Partner with Military Missions in Action to Fill the Footlocker. Our employees filled 11 footlockers with personal care items for active duty military serving abroad and homeless vets here in North Carolina.
  • Partner with the USO. Together, we've built 800 bikes and counting for children of military servicemen and women.
  • Treats for  Troops Drive. Employees collected 300 pounds of Halloween candy for the USO.
  • Seven families sponsored for the holiday season. We provide gifts and support for those in need.
