Betts Recruiting Announces New Veteran Initiative

Betts Recruiting Increases Diversification In The Sales Industry With Focused Efforts On Recruiting Military Veterans

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - November 09, 2016) - Betts Recruiting (Betts Recruiting, Inc.), the leading sales recruitment firm for groundbreaking companies throughout the United States and Europe, is excited to announce the launch of their expanded effort to help servicemen and women that are transitioning from military to civilian careers. The company has always strived to promote diversity throughout the sales industry, and this new veterans initiative is an excellent example of those efforts. In a recent U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics report, it was announced that there are over 20.8 million veterans no longer actively serving. Of which, more and more are choosing to work in the private sector every year.

Since its founding in 2009, Betts Recruiting has prided itself in being the go-to firm for innovative companies to find talent when building out their Sales, Marketing, and Customer Success teams. The company has excelled at helping companies hire revenue generators with the right qualifications that match both experience and culture requirements from a broad range of job seekers. Betts Recruiting has created more initiatives for veterans, including interview preparation courses, resume building workshops, and job search coaching, to help decrease the number of servicemen and women that are unemployed and help their clients find highly skilled talent.

"Veterans bring an amazing skill set of strong work ethic and proven leadership to the private sector. They are highly disciplined, driven, and excel at both leading teams and working independently. These individuals thrive in the environment of high-growth companies. We are honored that we are able to help military veterans translate their strong leadership traits and great communication skills into revenue generating careers with some truly innovative companies." -- Carolyn Betts Fleming, CEO and Founder of Betts Recruiting

Veteran Initiative
Betts Recruiting's increased commitment to helping military veterans find the right revenue-generating career comes after having successfully placed countless individuals with over 1,000 clients. Veterans possess skills essential for success in revenue generating roles as well as executive leadership. Betts Recruiting has trained specialized team members to focus on assisting veterans generate resumes and references, and translate their skillsets into valuable sales experience. The company's website and newest video offer veterans resources to help make their transitions easier as they leave military service.

Hiring Veterans
The company has also partnered with current clients looking to hire veterans. Many of their current clients have already had success finding quality leaders and sales representatives. Betts Recruiting is working to educate its clients about the benefits of hiring servicemen and women as part of their new enterprise. "When I was transitioning out of the service, Betts played an important role in helping me to translate my experience serving in Special Operations to make it more relatable to hiring managers in tech sales. Betts connected me with companies that looked at more than just the resume. I ended up going to MuleSoft, which believes in hiring for trajectory not altitude," said Steven Broudy, head of account development for the americas at MuleSoft.
