You've got proven leadership skills, early career management skills, adaptability, comfort with working in challenging environments and a performance-oriented work ethic. You're the perfect fit for us and here is why we are the perfect fit for you.

We've helped thousands of servicemen and servicewomen make the transition to civilian life and we can help you as well. Today, over 20 percent of our company's employees have military experience, with some still active in the National Guard or Reserves.

Union Pacific has donated over $200,000 in the past two years to the Wounded Warrior Project from one-time tax credits the company earned for hiring veterans meeting various government criteria and plans to do the same with the 2015 credits. The company chose to donate tax credit funds in appreciation of its military and veteran employees, and all the country's service men and women.


Recognizing there are thousands of veterans each month transitioning from active duty, Union Pacific organized and hosted its first military transition event in San Antonio, Texas. The event educated top military talent on how to make a successful and smooth transition to the corporate world, while also highlighting some specific career opportunities at Union Pacific.

We recognized that veterans often encounter challenges associated with different terminology, work environments and hiring processes as they transition into civilian jobs.
