Imagine being on a recruitment team that receives over 60,000 applicants, but only has 2,100 job openings available. Companies like J.B. Hunt Transport, Inc. face this challenge every year.

Today is Veterans Day, a holiday to honor those who have served in the U.S. Armed Forces. Men and women who sacrificed time with their families, comfort of their home and favorite foods, and sometimes their lives.
Our run of “I can… because of your service to our country” messages may be drawing to a close, but that doesn’t mean the gratitude ends today. We will continue to show our thanks through volunteer activities, donations, partnerships and our work on veterans.jobs.
In addition, we hope that our followers choose to send their own personal message of thanks. When veterans search #ICanBecauseofVets, we want them to find not just the eleven videos we produced but YOURS.
Veterans, thank you for your service and sacrifice! May we never forget that freedom is not free.
