HKY4 Opportunities

We understand how important finding meaningful work is to transitioning military and spouses as you embark on civilian life.

Hickory Metro employers appreciate the skills you honed and knowledge gained during your service - working as a team, meeting deadlines, leading and following directions, flexibility and adaptability - and of course, significant technical skills.  You can have a real impact here in cutting-edge industries crafting products and services that touch all over the globe.

Here are just a few of the sectors that have outsized representation and opportunities already within the region.

HKY4Vets collaborates closely with leading Hickory area companies, our Talent Connect Partners, who understand the competitive national talent landscape, rising technical job requirements, and the need for learners, active contributors, and leaders.

They recognize the value of engaging beyond their walls to proactively address challenges and acknowledge the exceptional abilities of our nation's military forces and families. Our partners know that hiring veterans and military spouses is not only the right thing to do but also drives business results.

We are proud to cooperate daily with these community employment leaders. #HKY4Vets #TalentConnect #VeteranHiring #CommunityPartnership
