Ah, that tricky word “happiness” — depending on who you’re talking to, happiness can mean a lot of different things. To Charles M. Schulz, it was a warm puppy, and to George Burns, it was “having a large, loving, caring, close-knit family in another city.” But going on the assumption that happiness is a good thing, CareerBliss.com has come up with a fresh list of the “10 happiest companies for veterans for 2012.” The main takeaway? Companies that specialize in technology seem to be the best fit for those with military backgrounds.
Below is content from the official press release from CareerBliss on the study, along with the ten top companies according to their research. Have your own feedback on the list? Sound off in the comments section below.
