The military trains individuals in specific, technical fields as a way to prepare them for the roles that they serve as they fight for our country’s freedom. Once they have completed their duties with the Army, Navy, Air Force or Marines, they are free to explore other avenues professionally. Taking with them the knowledge and skills needed to succeed in other job titles, these men and women are valuable assets to employers like you.
Creating custom challenge coins to hand out is a personal and memorable way to appeal to these talented individuals who are seeking employment after leaving the military. As giveaways at job fairs and recruiting sessions, they make a bold first impression on potential talent and also provide them with a way to contact you to inquire about open positions within your company.
Because they are often used in military settings, challenge coins are something that these men and women can relate to. Handing these items out in place of business cards is a way to attract new talent to your business or organization.
Custom challenge coins are good for business in the following ways:
- In recruiting efforts.
- At networking events.
- In employee incentive programs.
- At awards ceremonies and recognition events.
Once you have made contact with a former member of the military, it is important to exchange phone numbers and email addresses. This allows you ample opportunity to engage in conversation with the recruit and to determine whether or not he or she would make a great addition to your company. Contact information cleverly included in a challenge coin design makes it easy for job seekers to pick up the phone and give you a call as well.
When it comes to designing memorable challenge coins for recruits, there are a few things you should ask yourself:
- What is the purpose of my design?
- What types of people will it appeal to most?
- Should it be single or double sided?
- How elaborate should it be?
- How will others be able to contact me if my information is not included on the coin?
Once you have answered these questions, it will be time to move onto your design ideas. That’s where we assist you with the process.
