Reviews for Hire Our Heroes

Rating: 5 stars  

My name is SFC Kory Morris and I wanted to take the time to share my experience with Hire Our Heroes.

I am a former Special Forces soldier (Green Beret) who lives in Raeford, NC and currently transitionING from military to civilian life.

I was recently contacted by the TSA (Transportation Security Administration )for an Airport Assessment Interview, but the opportunity was in Tampa, FL and there was no way I would make it in time driving.

I would have had to pass on the opportunity, but my Care Coalition representative Sean Rooney knew about the HOH and the awesome work they were doing and contacted them on my behalf.

Within a few hours I was contacted by Hire Our Heroes (Margi Sockel) and giving my information to submit a request and subsequently my flight information. Hire Our Heroes paid for my flight to get to the interview location on time and I am currently 2 hours and 40 minutes from actually being interviewed.

None of this would have been possible without the kindness of the HOH staff and those who made donations. Thank you for this opportunity and this blessing that you have given to my family to make a successful transition into the civilian job market. You have given us a reason to believe that there is still genuine kindness and goodness in the world. This is why I felt the need to pay it forward and share my experience with this awesome, top notch organization.

Thankso for everything, and I will keep the organization posted on our progress after the interview.

Hire Our Heroes (HoH) is outstanding organization empowering veterans to be successful in finding meaningful employment after serving our country!

I stumbled upon HoH using a Google search and took a chance as my career search seemed to be going nowhere as my retirement date got closer. Amanda, an HoH volunteer, reviewed my resume, provided great feedback that I put into action. Within just a week I was interviewing with a company with a great opportunity for employment. Shortly after the phone interviews, I was invited out for a face to face interview with a well known company. I contacted Margi at HoH, told her about the opportunity and she helped me with the airline ticket to go to the interview. The week prior to traveling to the interview, I was offered yet another job opportunity in the same city! I traveled to my interviews compliments of HoH and Southwest Airlines and I interviewed with both companies the same day. Upon returning from the interviews a day later, I had offers from both companies!

I have accepted one of the offers with a great company and I owe so much to HoH! They provided me with the tools, knowledge, guidance to be successful in my job search and interviews. Additionally, when those opportunities showed great promise, they even made sure I could travel there to take advantage of the opportunities!

Amanda and Margi have stayed in contact with me and following up on my progress. The help they provided me on behalf on Hire our Heroes has been priceless! I am forever grateful to HoH for the amazing dedication to helping military veterans be successful in their transition to new careers after the military. I am so excited to start my new career following my retirement and Hire Our Heroes made it possible. Hire Our Heroes is without a doubt the top organization available to veterans to make a successful transition following their dedicated service.

I applied for a Federal Acquisition Contractor job working for the Veterans Administration and successfully passed the phone interview stage. They offered me a final interview at the academy located in Fredrick Maryland. I had no clue how I was going to get there because of the job I work now, doesn't allow me to do the extra things in life. I was researching what was the shortest route from South Florida to Maryland and I was looking at a long, 15 hour drive. Then HOH came along. My savior. Margi Sockel verified that I was a Veteran and guided me through a simple process and the end result was phenomenal. HOH confirmed my itinerary and days later I received paper tickets in the mail. I am in total debt to HOH and their sponsors. They saved me 30+ hours in driving and lots of gas money just so I can give it my best at the final interview. Thank you HOH for helping me.

Hire Our Heroes helped me out big time i had a interview for the VA Acquisition Academy and then i received a phone call to schedule a final interview. I got in contact with HOH and spoke to Margi and she walked me through everything i needed to do so i could get my plane ticket to Maryland for my final interview. Margi was a big help and i am thankful i was able to get in contact with her

Keep up the good work so more Veterans can have more opportunities THANK YOU

I just received my first ever offer letter from an amazing company and it was all thanks to the personal support and dedication of the staff at Hire Our Heroes. Not only did I receive invaluable resume and self-marketing tips from Shauna, my career transition specialist, but I also received the personal support of Hire Our Heroes' Chairman and Founder, Dan Caporale. He and his staff truly made my career aspirations their personal mission. After deploying to Afghanistan and coming home to finish my Master's degree, I was still struggling to find my place in the professional world. HOH gave me the tools, confidence and direction to land a great job in a field related to my studies. I'm enthusiastic and excited to begin my professional civilian career. THANK YOU HIRE OUR HEROES!

I was blessed to have HOH connect me with Lori (the energizer bunny of HR). Her knowledge, positive mentorship, and selfless devotion to my success is extraordinary. You want her on your team.

I feel extremely fortunate and honored to serve as a volunteer for Hire Our Heroes. HOH is a non-profit that genuinely cares about our armed forces, their families, and well-being. HOH volunteers are passionate about what we do in volunteering our time to serve our armed forces. I’m also proud of the fact that when we work with these amazing men and women, there is no end date. We are here to help them when and whenever they need it. This has, and continues to be an amazing experience. I feel so blessed to be able to work with such honorable and amazing men and women. HOH strives to help these men and women realize the amazing skills, abilities, and potential they offer and have to share with corporate America and their communities.

I am blessed and deeply appreciative of the assistance that I have received from Marci and the entire staff of HOH. It's incredible that your hard work and dedication hasn't made HOH a household name amongst service members,but I am for certain that it won't be long before this happens. I would highly recommend the use of this service to anyone transitioning

I am blessed and honored to serve as a volunteer for Hire Our Heroes. In finding ways to volunteer, it is often difficult to gage the quality of organization you are volunteering for. HOH is truly non-profit and all of the volunteers give their time to serve our armed forces. Going into this experience, I thought it would be about what I could give back. But I can't even begin to describe what the amazing men and women that I have worked with have given back to me. It is an organization that truly follows the philosophy of "teaching a man to fish" by not just providing material resources, but by assisting them with recognizing the skills they possess.

I am a Marine Corps Veteran of Operation Iraqi freedom, and since the economic downturn I have had trouble finding work that would provide enough to support my family. Recently I had the good fortune of being asked to interview for a position that matched my skills and education; the only issue was, that this interview was out of state, and with limited resources getting to the interview was going to prove very difficult. Fortunately for me, I found Hire our Heroes and I was put in touch with Margi. I can't say how very blessed I am to have had Margi and the Hire our Heroes Team in my corner. Thanks to HOH and Southwest I was able to make it to my interview and back. I have now moved on to the second round of the hiring process and my chances are looking good, thanks to Hire our Heroes. I can't begin to state how grate full I am to Margi and the Team.
