CivilianJobs.com helps veterans look for civilian employees. The MVE for Military helps military-experienced job seekers identify the top employers to target for civilian careers. MVEs are selected annually based on those employers whose recruiting, training and retention plans best serve military service members and veterans.
About 30 companies were named as finalists; CSX is the only other railroad named to the list. Other finalist companies include Amazon, Army Air Force Exchange Service, Chesapeake Energy, Con-Way Freight, General Electric, Northrup Grumman, USAA and Walmart.
"I would like to express my appreciation to all of the companies who submitted Most Valuable Employers (MVE) for Military 2010 surveys," said Bill Basnett, vice president, Operations, CivilianJobs.com. "This is our second year conducting the MVE for Military survey and we are pleased to have a 30 percent increase in surveys submitted for 2010. The submission responses show us that despite recent economic challenges, corporate America values the highly skilled talent and leadership ability that veterans bring to a company when hired."
The Most Valuable Employers (MVE) for Military 2010 was open to all U.S.-based companies. The finalists were selected based on surveys in which employers outlined their 2010 recruiting, training and retention plans that best serve military service members and veterans. Winners will be selected from the pool of finalist companies and will be announced May 2, 2010. Both winners and finalists will be recognized on the CivilianJobs.com Web site as well as in the May issue of Civilian Job News, CivilianJobs.com's world-wide military base newspaper.
