We are proud to include the recruiting, hiring, and supporting the professional development of veterans in our core business rhythms at Jovian Concepts.”
Jovian Concepts joins 834 other companies from 49 states, plus the District of Columbia, who have shown a commitment to hiring veterans, but also ensuring that they have a long-term career and growth plan that uses the diverse skills they acquired through their military service.
