Army National Hiring Days

Friday, May 7, 2021

What is it?

Army National Hiring Days is an all-Army effort to inspire young men and women across the nation to join the U.S. Army, the best trained, best equipped and most talented force in the world. The Army is also one of the most diverse organizations in the nation. Diversity in people, diversity in ideas and beliefs, diversity in skills – makes the Army the respected organization it is today.

Joining the Army means being part of a team where People come First.

What are the current and past efforts of the Army?

The Army is conducting its Army National Hiring Days campaign, May 10 – June 14, with the goal to hire 1,700 new Soldiers into the active Army, Army National Guard and the Army Reserve. The campaign uses digital media ads, social media content, media engagements, and community partner outreach to create a nation-wide conversation about the event. The Army is:

  • Hiring high school and college graduates.
  • Offering part- and full-time career opportunities in 150 fields including cyber, artificial intelligence, healthcare, aviation, big data analysis and many more. Army Recruiting’s Career Match tool, an interactive quiz, helps the youth align their personal interests, with the available opportunities.
  • The largest provider of scholarships in the nation, enabling scholars and athletes to attend college and become officers. Army ROTC, available at 1,000 college campuses nationwide, is one way college students can gain a college education and leadership skills to last a lifetime without incurring student loan debt.

What continued efforts does the Army have planned?

The Army honors all its people for their long-standing courage to answer the call to service and make the Army communities better. All Soldiers will be provided access to quality training, education, and competitive benefits that support them and their families both during and after their time in the Army.

The Army will continue to work with industry partners to help Army veterans, offering job interviews when a Soldier leaves military service.

Why is this important to the Army?

Since June 1775, the Army has always supported the nation. As a volunteer force, the Army has a continuous need for qualified, diverse, educated workforce to defend the nation, assist fellow citizens with pandemic relief, and respond when there are natural and manmade disasters. The Army offers opportunity.
