New York, NY – Feb. 11th, 2016 – Eighty thousand jobs — a variety of them — this spring. And many of those will be made available to America’s Veterans preparing for careers in civilian life!!!!
This great opportunity will be covered this coming weekend when the nationally syndicated television show “Hiring America” — a unique program designed to help U.S. Vets leaving the military prepare for new careers — airs an in-depth interview with Eric Schelling, Head of talent acquisition for The Home Depot.
The show is syndicated and seen on more than 190 television stations across the nation.
“Every one of our stores, every distribution center, in every state and town will be looking to fill a variety of positions for our spring rush,” said Schelling who appears on the show. “And we truly believe and hope that a great many of these jobs will be filled by American veterans.”
He noted that The Home Depot celebrates veterans and all its employees. “It’s in our corporate DNA,” he related. “Giving back to the community, making them feel like family… and mentoring to help accelerate careers is an integral part of the culture.”
To apply and find out more, all a vet has to do is watch this weekend’s Hiring America or visit the HomeDepot.com website, click on the “careers” icon — and fill out the application.
“Military people are weaned in hard work,” observed Tony Lemma, a regional vice president of The Home Depot who is a former Navy veteran now responsible for 70+ stores. “I started as a sales associate in 1995, realized that much of my military training was transferable to retailing — and quickly moved up the ladder.”
“It’s so fulfilling for us at Hiring America to be able to offer insight and job opportunities,” stated Bill Deutch, executive producer and creator of the program.
”One of our key messages to military personnel leaving for civilian life is… don’t sell yourself short. You have transferable skills that are invaluable in business.”
