Interviewing Military Service Members

These tips are designed to help you successfully interview transitioning and past service personnel for roles at Bridge. They are designed to help you understand the candidates’ abilities, skills and strengths and ensure an experience for the candidate that focuses on engagement and understanding.

When developing your interview plan/questions for a veteran interview, remember that the candidate you are meeting spent years of their life serving a purpose and mission. This feeling is (often) not replicated in the commercial sector, so keep in mind that the candidate is likely now seeking a career that also has meaning and impact, and one that utilizes their skills and talents. The topics below will help you to prepare and conduct an effective interview and selection process that involves military service members.
