Should I keep my Army Reserve experience on my LinkedIn profile? Do tech recruiters care about that at all? MOS is unrelated to IT. Targeting SWE position, haven’t heard of any firms hiring specifically vets, besides Amazon.
Thanks.

    Yesss! Please do. It deserves respect. Those who cannot appreciate it don't deserve you as a coworker! 🙏

    Amazon has veteran recruiting. I believe many other tech companies have similar programs.

    Did you do any data analytics work, strategy, operations work in military? Send me a DM and I can hook you up. I know someone here who might be looking for people like you.

    What type of work did you do?

    Udemy has a program for veterans returning to work.

    Also, look up "Path forward returnship" programs. These are people who had a career, took a break, and want to join in again.
