Frequently Asked Questions

Does Lucas Group charge job seekers a fee for their services?

Lucas Group does not charge military job seekers any fee for services, nor do we require you to purchase specific books or training materials.

How are you paid?

Our corporate clients pay us a fee for finding top talent that they ultimately hire. This fee is not taken out of your compensation/salary. We’ve found that most job seekers who transition from military service ultimately get higher starting salaries when they work with us because we are negotiating behind the scenes on their behalf throughout the process. Here’s the bottom line…we don’t get paid unless you get hired! We are as motivated as you are to help our candidates find great jobs for military veterans.

Can you help me in my career search?

That will depend upon several factors, including your education and experience, as well as your location, job, and compensation preferences. The more you bring to the table in terms of experience and education, and the more flexible you are with respect to where you live, the more likely we can help find a job that leads to a lasting, successful career. We specifically work with Senior Military Officers (SMOs), Junior Military Officers (JMOs), Non-Commissioned Officers (NCOs) and Technicians, and Veterans with Corporate Experience.

How do I get started?

Register as a job seeker on the Lucas Group website, and attach a draft of your resume, if you have one available. A Lucas Group military recruiter will review your background and parameters. If we believe we might be a valuable resource for you in your veteran jobs search, we will contact you to complete a marketability assessment. Register here.

How do you match me with military hiring companies?

We select candidates whose backgrounds, skills and education match the qualifications and experience our corporate clients are seeking for specific positions they are currently seeking to fill. We then review each potential candidate’s career parameters (position, location, opportunity) to determine which candidates and companies best match. This ensures that you will interview for opportunities that you are both qualified for and interested in pursuing.

How do interviews get scheduled?

We will present you with career opportunities via our Military Hiring Conferences (both in-person and virtually) in addition to individual interviews scheduled outside of the Hiring Conference process.

How will you help me during the interview process?

To maximize your chances of success in the interview, we will prepare you for each interview with real-time intelligence on the company and interviewers. We also coordinate all interview logistics.

Will you help me in the salary negotiation process?

We believe that salary negotiation is most effective when it is done before an offer is officially extended. We will ensure that corporations you are interviewing with know what your salary requirements are in advance, in addition to the salary ranges of other opportunities you may be considering. This process ensures that the offer is both fair and competitive.
