While veterans often face barriers entering the civilian job market after leaving the military, most find ways to leverage the skills they learned while serving to secure gainful employment, according to Monster's 2018 Veteran Hiring survey.

"Veterans are a highly skilled talent pool," says Bob Melk, Monster's chief commercial officer. "There is no question about the value those who have served can bring to our civilian workforce and economy."

Monster, along with Military.com, also unveiled the fourth annual list of Best Companies for Veterans -- the top 10 employers demonstrating extraordinary success in veteran hiring and retention, chosen by a panel of veteran employment experts.
