Military Recruiting

video of staff discussing their military background and working at SwRI

Southwest Research Institute has a long history of supporting veterans and reservists. Our Veterans Recruiting Plan enhances our efforts to hire and retain veterans and reservists as SwRI employees. Veterans of the US military are well educated and trained individuals who are proven leaders, are mission focused, have a strong work ethic, and are team players.

The Institute's goal is to participate in military recruiting events throughout the year.

The Employment Operations Section of the Human Resources Department has a dedicated recruiter to take the lead in military recruiting efforts. Please contact our recruiter at militaryrecruiting@swri.org for further information on employment opportunities at SwRI.


Salaried Military-Friendly Positions

If you have at least a Bachelor's degree, SwRI may be interested in hiring you for a full-time technical, professional or management position.

Work ethic, leadership, and project management skills are the skill sets and values that I received in the military that have been the most beneficial to me at Southwest Research Institute.

                  – A. Steiner (US Navy)

The best advice I can give to someone that will be separating from the military and looking for employment is to find a way to translate your skills from military to civilian life. Be ready to get some retraining to make sure your skill set is relevant to modern expectations.

                  – T. Alger (US Army)

Southwest Research Institute provided assistance in moving from the military to the civilian workforce by placing me in a positive environment, with wonderful coworkers!
