Capital One Financial Corporation (NYSE: COF) announced that it has been named to the 2014 Military Friendly Employer ® list by Victory Media, publisher of G.I. Jobs and Military Spouse. Capital One was also designated a Top Military Spouse Friendly employer by Military Spouse magazine. Companies honored with the elite Military Friendly Employer ® title were chosen as a result of a survey of more than 5,000 companies across the country. Criteria for the survey included a benchmark score across key programs and policies such as the strength of company military recruiting efforts, the percentage of new hires with prior military service, retention programs, and company policies on National Guard and Reserve service.
Capital One has long supported military veterans and fully appreciates the value that military experience brings to the workplace. To help military candidates find the right job and to help veterans and other companies understand they can use and leverage their skills, Capital One has launched a Military Skills Translator. The tool uses a custom-designed algorithm to translate military service, pay grade, Military Occupational Specialty (MOS), Air Force Specialty Code (AFSC), and/or military job titles and makes recommendations of potential jobs at Capital One that match those skills. The Military Skills Translator can be found at www.capitalonecareers.com/military.
“Capital One is privileged and honored to have veterans from every branch of service as colleagues, team members and leaders throughout our company,” said John G. Finneran, Jr., General Counsel, Capital One, and former Naval Officer. “America’s veterans and military spouses have years of experience and training doing precisely the kind of work that our companies are doing every day – working with state of the art technologies, solving logistical challenges, juggling multiple priorities, and meeting challenging and changing expectations. These men and women – our military heroes and their partners and spouses – have what it takes and we need to continue to do our part to make sure that we give them the opportunity to translate their military experience into the civilian workforce.”
