Interview by Marysa Stevens
Jean South, founder and CEO of Hire Served, is a Marine spouse, former FBI Special Agent and the daughter of two Army veterans. As an FBI agent, she focused on Russian Organized Crime before transitioning out of government service to join McChrystal Group, founded by Gen. Stanley McChrystal, as a consultant and recruiter. Jean serves as a board member for Semper Fido, a nonprofit that pairs veterans with PTSD and TBI with service dogs. She also volunteers with The Weekly Fight, an organization dedicated to bringing attention to the high rate of suicides among veterans.
Hire Served gives military-passionate employers the competitive advantage in recruiting, hiring and on-boarding top veteran talent by bridging the military-corporate culture barrier throughout the recruitment cycle. Hire Served also helps place military spouses with companies that offer remote-work positions.
Jean’s extraordinary accomplishments at the FBI and at McChrystal Group have inspired her to mentor fellow military spouses in courage, goal setting and with career opportunities.
