Recruit Veterans with criminal record

It is likely that you work alongside someone who has a criminal record. Each year, more than 650,000 men and women leave the prison system in the U.S and look to build a life after paying their debt to society. Unemployment is one of the leading causes for the high recidivism rate in the U.S. with more than 50% of the people released from jail finding themselves unemployed a year after they were released.

Today, there are 7-million job openings in the country, but only 6-million people looking for work. Finding talent is likely the toughest challenge your company faces, but we have a community that can be a great asset to the company, Veterans with a criminal record.

Veteran Recruiting has teamed with dozens of leading companies to give veterans with criminal records a second chance. Second Chance Vets will connect your recruiters with veterans that have been caught up in the criminal justice system, paid their debt to society, and simply want to move on with their lives gainful employment.

When you support the Second Chance for Vets Initiative, your recruiters will have the opportunity to connect with fully-screened veterans that are matched with your jobs specifically in the virtual career fairs we host.
