Junior Military Officers (JMOs) transitioning to the civilian economy often face one major obstacle: translating military achievements into business needs. Jack Hosterman is an expert translator.

Jack’s worked all sides of the desk. He was an accomplished ICBM Launch Officer in the U.S. Air Force for six years. He owned and sold two companies, one in the IT industry and another in oil and gas exploration. He’s been a highly successful executive recruiter with Lucas Group for eight years. Such broad and deep experience underscores Jack’s ability to succinctly translate military achievement into civilian requirements.

Jack’s work is a natural extension of himself. A well-traveled Air Force brat, he lived in eight different homes by the age of 14 and his personal and professional travels across the United States provide a valuable backdrop for executive recruiting. His distinctive experience allows him to assiduously listen to both military candidates and corporate clients.

For candidates, he diligently translates military skill sets into business benefits for deserving military officers. For business clients, he helps them appreciate the applicability and unlimited upside potential of JMOs in civilian leadership roles and the ROI his services yield for finding transcendent talent. Jack consistently produces highly qualified candidates—not just resumes—in a matter of days and that consistent responsiveness is highly valued.

And producing highly qualified candidates is becoming increasingly important. After a few years of grinding through the economic slowdown, companies are beginning to restock talent to remain competitive. Junior Military Officers are excellent candidates–skilled, adaptable, business talent with the breadth and depth to become future business leaders. With a distinguished track record at so many U.S. businesses, vets are increasingly in high demand.

So is Jack. If you’re looking for a highly skilled recruiter who can solve Rubik’s cube in less than two minutes; play the piano; and grab a sandwich, participate in an alumni conference call with Washington University in St. Louis, and navigate four lanes of traffic simultaneously…you may want to get in touch with Jack.

If that doesn’t make sense, he can translate.
