Translating Military Experience to the Civilian World through Veteran Recruiting
Your experience in the military is valuable! However, it’s tough to know how to equate your rank or job experience while serving to a civilian job. For example, you may have been in HR in the military, but that doesn’t necessarily mean you’ll want a human resources job out of the military. Are you looking to step into a different career field after your military service? Blue Signal is uniquely qualified to lead you down the right path, having advice to give from experience surrounding education, certifications, and/or training. Combat-related military operation specialties (or MOS) are also valuable and can be translated to a civilian job. We’re specialized in advocating for our veteran candidates.
How Military Service Sets You Apart
Serving honorably deserves recognition. Whether you were a Marine, Sailor, Soldier, or Airman, the United States military teaches every service member the same set of skills: grit, determination, and not accepting defeat. These foundational skills set you apart from other candidates. Companies seek individuals like those who served because they need flexible, strong leaders who are willing to adapt and take initiative. In a study done by ZipRecruiter and the Call of Duty Endowment, veterans generally have a lower turnover rate throughout their careers, and 59.1% of employers found that veterans perform “better than” or “much better than” their non-veteran counterparts. Blue Signal’s veteran recruiting team works with many companies looking to hire vets with these skills, ultimately giving back to those that sacrificed for us.
Assessing Military Background in Veteran Recruiting
Here at Blue Signal, we work to assess your military background and goals to better align you with a fulfilling role in the civilian world. What some military recruiters get wrong is stereotyping people based on their rank, such as assuming officers are planners and NCOs are executers. Each experience in the military is unique, and we don’t want to put you in a box. Our recruiters are interested in exploring every opportunity that could be a good fit for you, putting your career desires at the forefront of your job search.

CEO & Founder

Blue Signal’s drive to find the right candidate/client fit is awesome. We made great hires and they stayed actively engaged throughout the onboarding process and beyond.
Director of Networking
Network Equipment Manufacturer
VP of Sales
Wireless OEM Firm
We brought Blue Signal to fill a job that had been sitting open for a year. Blue Signal's professional and diligent team was able to fill the position quickly with a perfect candidate.
Global Manufacturing Firm
Blue Signal genuinely cares about matching the needs of both candidates and clients. I highly recommend partnering with the team at Blue Signal for your hiring needs.
Emerging Technology Firm
Blue Signal exceeded my every expectation in a search team. I will not introduce them to competitors — I’m hoping they focus on new markets and remain my secret weapon for unicorn talent.
Industrial Technology Firm
Blue Signal understood our hiring needs extraordinarily well. Each candidate forwarded to date has been one worthy of strong consideration. Remarkable, considering I’ve spoken to some 40 to 50 Blue Signal candidates by now. Clearly, significant vetting is done up-front by Blue Signal. In the past, via other providers, I’ve been used to a “hit rate” - of below 50% for truly qualified, considerable candidates. With Blue Signal I have undeniably spent more time interviewing real candidates and less time overall in the hiring process since there’ve been no ‘wasted’ interviews – no “why am I talking to this person?”
