Federal contractors aggressively target veterans when recruiting new talent and looking to fill vacancies across the organization. Unfortunately, their efforts to recruit and onboard veterans aren’t always effective.

This success recruiting, hiring and onboarding veterans was the topic of conversation when ARServices’ CEO, Jay McCargo, sat down with the Federal Technology Insider (FTI) to record a podcast.
