That is when things are chaotic – veterans learn to focus on getting things done. For 25 years, Beau got things done in the Marine Corps. He’s a retired colonel that held roles from intelligence to Marine Recon and went all over the world. Today, he is a Senior Manager of Military Talent Acquisition for Amazon. Amazon is a company that also strives to attract people that get things done. In fact, one of its leadership principles is all about getting things done: bias for action. He talks to us a little bit about that and describes some of the programs Amazon has in place to attract military veterans.
