ORLANDO, Fla., March 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Westgate Resorts is proud to announce that we have been chosen as a finalist for CivilianJobs.com's prestigious "Most Valuable Employers for Military" Award. The CivilianJobs.com Most Valuable Employers (MVE) for Military serves to help military-experienced job seekers identify the top employers to target for civilian careers. MVEs are selected annually based on those employers whose recruiting, training and retention plans best serve military service members and veterans.     

"Westgate Resorts is truly honored to have been named as a 2013 finalist for CivilianJobs.com's Most Valuable Employers for Military Award," said David Siegel, President and CEO of Westgate Resorts. "We owe our military veterans a tremendous debt of gratitude and they bring valuable skills and experiences to the workplace."

Westgate has a long tradition of supporting our nation's military veterans. In addition to recruiting and training military veterans, Westgate Resorts recently gave away 1,000 three-day, two-night vacations to U.S. military personnel (and their families) who have served in The War on Terror, Operation Iraqi Freedom or Operation Enduring Freedom. Westgate initiated this special offer to express our gratitude to the dedicated men and women serving in the United States armed forces who risk their lives every day so we can enjoy our freedom.

The MVE recognition is produced by CivilianJobs.com, where America's military connects with civilian careers. The 2013 MVE for Military was open to all U.S.-based companies. Winners will be selected from this pool of finalist companies and will be announced on April 28, 2013. In observance of Armed Forces Day (May 18, 2013), the annual list of MVEs will be released in May via CivilianJobs.com's military base newspaper, Military Transition News and also be displayed on the CivilianJobs.com website.
