I have found that hiring managers don't understand the struggles a veteran may have when transitioning from active duty to the civilian workforce. This can be very frustrating for both parties if the hiring manager isn't sensitive to this. In many cases, a veteran will leave their first job within the first year of being hired. This can be mitigated by bringing awareness and education to the leadership. For example, the veteran may go through feelings of inadequacy because they are no longer the subject matter expert or person in charge. They may become frustrated when things that weren't acceptable in the military are normal or tolerated in the civilian workplace. For example, a veteran may get very frustrated with subordinates or peers if they are late to a meeting. A manager needs to be able to help the veteran work through this transition. At my facility we have started a Veterans and Military Support Network to assist with the retention of veterans and education of the leadership.
