Hire Our Heroes - We Serve, Inc. Award Winner
Hire Our Heroes was founded by veterans Dan Caporale, Tim Kirk and Paul Magness with the goal of capturing each transitioning veteran within one year prior to their discharge to provide them with a road map that will allow for the veteran to position themselves for a more successful career transition as they leave the service. Hire Our Heroes helps train, mentor and coach veterans in career job placement and will even fly them to their next job interview across the country, all at no cost to the veteran. Hire Our Heroes makes daily impacts with a high touch approach by assisting veterans with resume writing, social media training and connecting with employers looking to hire veterans.
