How We Determine Which Jobs Are Better for Veterans

Organizations competing to make the Military Friendly® Employers list must take a comprehensive survey outlining the programs and services they offer veterans. The results are combined with public data and veteran employee feedback to determine which organizations are Military Friendly®. When they take the survey, employers are asked to list the top 10 jobs they recruit veterans for. We compiled data from more than 200 Military Friendly® Employers to bring you this year’s Top 25 Hot Jobs for Veterans.

For each position, you’ll find a job description, job-growth projections from the Labor Department’s Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), the median annual salary, and what education or training you need for each job. To help you get started, we also listed the Military Friendly® Employers advertising in the April issue of G.I. Jobs that are recruiting for these jobs right now.
