Veterans are viewed as an especially good fit for building electric cars, because many of them acquired relevant technical skills during their service. With that in mind, Tesla is making a concerted effort to hire veterans — and to make them feel comfortable in their new positions.Considering that Tesla is seeking to expand it's manufacturing capabilities, due in part to the Chinese interest in EVs, there will likely be more hirings.
A former Army intelligence analyst in its human resources department focuses on recruiting veterans. Candidates are reached through word of mouth, partnerships with veterans groups, and recruiting events.
Tesla also holds informal monthly gatherings for its military employees, and has made Veterans Day a company-wide paid holiday. Management also makes efforts to accommodate employees still on active duty.
This is really good news!!
