U.S. Army aims to hire 10,000 new Soldiers during three-day event
LAS VEGAS, NV — U.S. Army recruiters in all parts of Nevada are part of the U.S. Army’s first nationwide virtual hiring campaign June 30-July 2 with a goal of recruiting 10,000 new Soldiers to serve in 150 different occupations.
Army National Hiring Days is an all-Army effort to inspire individuals across the nation to consider military service. As part of the three-day hiring event, Army leaders and recruiters across America will encourage
individuals to explore the Army’s potential career paths, ranging from traditional combat roles to support positions in logistics, engineering and technology. They will also discuss the benefits of military service, to include health insurance, retirement plans, training and education opportunities, and family support programs.
U.S. Army recruiters have focused heavily on virtual communications since mid-March when the COVID-19 pandemic necessitated a socially distant society. This new virtual hiring event will be the first time the Army has come together as a whole to leverage the digital space in a concentrated all-Army nationwide recruiting effort. “The last three months have challenged America,” said Maj. Gen. Frank Muth, commanding general for U.S. Army Recruiting Command, based at Fort Knox, Kentucky. “We are adapting our recruiting efforts to the current environment to ensure we can continue to protect and support our nation in the future.” During Army National Hiring Days, interested individuals can visit www.goarmy.com/hiringdays to see if they meet the qualifications, learn about job opportunities and associated hiring incentives, and connect with a recruiter in their area.
“The United States Army is a diverse group of men and women that I have been truly blessed to call my extended family. The opportunities presented to me throughout my career as a first generation Hispanic American were unparalleled in general society. Service in the Army was an honor and something to be truly proud of.” ~ Brigadier General Frank Gonzales (USA retired) “Soldiers’ varying ideas, beliefs and backgrounds make the Army the respected, diverse organization it is today. We embrace our differences and leverage individuals’ unique strengths to accomplish a mission we all believe in: protecting and serving Americans at home and abroad.” said Mr. Christopher Schroeder, Nevada U.S. Army Reserve Ambassador.
Qualified applicants are eligible for bonuses up to $40,000 or student loan reimbursement up to $65,000, depending on the selected occupation, length of the contract, and timeline for shipping to basic training.
