Hudson IT Becomes Partner of Employer Partnership of the Armed Forces
Orlando Office Takes an Active Role in Giving Back to Those Who Sacrifice for Our Country
Hudson IT is proud to support the local chapter of the Employer Partnership of the Armed Forces. Led by the efforts of Technical Recruiter, and proud Army Reservist, Ed Maldonado, the Orlando team met with Rachel Foster who is the Program Support Manager for the Orlando Florida area. After reviewing our credentials as a top-tier technology staffing and solutions firm in the state of Florida and across the United States, the Partnership granted our participation in the program. Mike Bryan, General Manager for the Hudson IT Orlando office, described his approach to the partnership, "Our plan is to engage the rich candidate pool represented by this organization and network with the other partners within the organization. We are hoping to 'pilot' the program here locally and perhaps expand the relationship to include other Hudson offices."

About the Employer Partnership
The Employer Partnership (EP) http://jobsforveterans.employerpartnership.org/ocar/h2h was created as a way to provide America's employers with a direct link to some of America's finest employees - Service members and their families. Through the partnership, Service members can leverage their military training and experience for career opportunities in today's civilian job market with national, regional and local Employer Partners.
Working with Program Support Managers
Similar to a recruiter, we have PSMs to assist Service members and their families in their quest for suitable employment. PSMs work as liaisons with human resources departments at employer partners and various other employers and agencies across the country. In addition, they post information about job fairs and events and work with Service members to refine their applications for employment, resume writing, and interviewing skills.
Creating a Better Workplace
This partnership facilitates the transition that comes with a leave of absence from the civilian workplace to serve the nation. With military training and deployment schedules, Service members and their families can better prepare for a leave of absence and employers are afforded a more predictable picture of their future staffing needs. Employers may also see potential cost saving in recruiting and training. This partnership is a win-win situation for service members, employers and the Nation as a whole.
