Transitioning from military to civilian life can be a difficult time and trying to find a job during it all, can be overwhelming. In fact, the unemployment rate is higher than the civilian rate, but there are some industries that are a better fit for military veterans transitioning.
Transitioning back into civilian life can be a hard task and finding a job after military life can be even more daunting. ConocoPhillips is one company that recognizes the challenges and is recruiting veterans into the workplace.
The oil and gas industry continues to be an area providing hope for veterans. ConocoPhillips is seeking to be the company for veterans seeking work. The company has created a program to help veterans find work within the workplace and has even dedicated part of the website to recruiting vets. Part of the program also partners with Orion International, a military talent management firm, which helps guide veterans through the hiring process.
