Alpharetta, Ga., July 13, 2015 – Hire Heroes USA, a 501 c(3) national nonprofit organization dedicated to helping veterans transform their military service into civilian success, has confirmed a total of 1,510 veterans hired in the first half of 2015. Their current average weekly rate of 54 confirmed veteran hires translates to a conversion rate of 44 percent from “helped” to “hired.”

Hire Heroes USA empowers transitioning service members, veterans, and their spouses by building the confidence and skills necessary to secure civilian employment through free, individualized programs delivered via online/telephone career coaching and transition workshops.
