Twenty-nine percent of employers are actively recruiting veterans to work for their organizations, up 9 percentage points from a year ago, according to a survey by CareerBuilder.

Twenty-two percent plan to add members of the National Guard to their headcount, up 8 percentage points. Sixty-five percent said they would be more likely to hire a veteran over another equally qualified candidate.

Looking to leverage the technical and leadership skills of military personnel, three in 10 hope to fill information technology positions with veterans.
