Ex-SEAL, Now at Google, Talks About Recruiting Vets to Tech Industry

Harry Wingo spoke with Fast Company magazine about how veterans' skills translate to Silicon Valley.

How is being a Navy SEAL good preparation for joining a tech company?

Harry Wingo, a former SEAL, told FastCompany.com that the discipline learned by being in the military is not so very different from what's required in the hypercompetitive technology field. He added: 

... the military is an ever more technological force. I think the challenge is making the translation, helping veterans explain to the people hiring how they used technology in the military.

Wingo is in human resources for Google.
