Why Should I Subscribe to GettaVet?

By using GettaVet, you will be hiring a hard-working, motivated, ethical person who is skilled. Whether a veteran, active duty, honorably discharged, or spouse of a veteran, you will be helping them earn extra money or grow their business. If you’re not convinced, here are some additional reasons to hire from GettaVet to complete your project:

  1. Accelerated learning curve: Veterans have the proven ability to learn new skills and concepts. Also, they enter the public workforce with identifiable and transferable skills, proven in real-world situations. 
  2. Leadership: The military trains people to lead by example as well as through direction, delegation, motivation, and inspiration. Veterans understand the practical ways to manage behaviors for results, even in the most trying circumstances. 
  3. Efficient performance under pressure: Veterans understand the rigors of tight schedules and limited resources. They have developed the capacity to know how to accomplish priorities on time, despite tremendous stress. They know the critical importance of staying with a task until it is done right.
  4. Technology and globalization: Because of their experiences in the service, veterans are usually aware of trends pertinent to business and industry. They can bring the kind of global outlook and technological savvy to your project.
  5. Integrity: Veterans know what it means to do “an honest day’s work.” You can rest assured they have a track record of integrity, often including security clearances. This integrity translates into qualities of sincerity and trustworthiness.
  6. Conscious of health and safety standards: Thanks to extensive training, veterans are aware of health and safety protocols both for themselves and the welfare of others. Individually, they represent a drug-free workforce that is cognizant of maintaining personal health and fitness. Their awareness and conscientiousness translate into the protection of employees, property, and materials.
  7. Triumph over adversity: In addition to dealing positively with the typical issues of personal maturity, veterans have frequently triumphed over great adversity. They likely have proven their mettle in mission-critical situations demanding endurance, stamina, and flexibility. They may have overcome personal disabilities through strength and determination.

Your project will be matched and completed by qualified military service verified veterans, retirees, active duty, or military spouses. They each have profiles and reviews available to help you decide on the best fit for your project. Our search feature will locate people within a certain radius (miles), skill match, or by keywords within the description of profile, cost, reviews, etc. 

You can quickly and easily communicate online or via our app, which speeds up the process and ensuring you are getting only the best for your project. Most of all, you will be thanking veterans, active duty, and their spouses, for their services.
