Hire Heroes USA empowers US military members, veterans and spouses to succeed in the civilian workforce. They prioritize transparency, and have earned a 4-star rating from Charity Navigator and the Guide Star Platinum Seal. Funded primarily through public donations and private grants, Hire Heroes USA provides its services at no cost to its clients.

They help veterans in multiple ways, far beyond what a recruiting firm might do: 

  • Educating business owners on the advantage of hiring veterans or their spouses.
  • Providing career coaching, including:
    • Digging deep into veterans’ experience to help discover jobs they would do well.
    • Helping veterans + their spouses build resumes that are easy for a civilian employer to understand.
    • Teaching interview skills. 
    • Providing networking opportunities.
  • Positioning veterans with companies that are looking for the skills they have.

In addition to buying a ticket, here are three other ways you can support this event, which last year raised $100K for Hire Heroes USA:
