GS Alumnus Advocates for Hiring Veterans

July 15, 2015

GS Alumnus Robert Goldfarb '54 recently penned an article for The New York Times in which he focused on the importance of veteran hiring initiatives. While many corporations have recruiting programs that target veterans, employment rates continue to be lower than their civilian counterparts. Military experience is challenging to translate on a resume and some hiring managers have concerns about hiring someone that might have mental or behavioral issues such as post traumatic stress disorder. Robert works to demystify these challenges with corporations and nonprofits and offers advice to veterans seeking employment.

Robert leads a management consulting firm with clients on five continents and his book "What's Stopping Me From Getting Ahead?" has been published in five languages. He has written articles for the New York Times Sunday Business section on the current workplace and job market. Robert meets regularly with hiring officials of corporations and non-profit organizations throughout the United States.
