Veterans to Energy

Veterans often possess strong management skills, an operational perspective, and the capacity to operate under challenging circumstances. Marathon Oil has implemented a military veteran recruiting strategy that includes building relationships with veteran services organizations and participating in targeted career fairs, job boards and websites, resulting in better access to officers and enlisted personnel from various branches of the military.

To facilitate veterans' retention and transition to the corporate environment, operational organizations have developed a program that pairs new veteran hires with an employee mentor.

In addition to valuing the experience and skills of our veterans, Marathon Oil supports our employees' need for leave to fulfill their military obligations. In 2012, Marathon Oil was presented a Patriot Award for its support of the National Guard and Reserves in Oklahoma. The honor is bestowed to employers by the Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve, a Department of Defense agency established in 1972.

“It's an honor and a privilege to support the men and women who have served in our armed forces.They bring discipline, commitment and focus to the job, and their leadership abilities and sense of teamwork make them a good fit within our Company's culture.”
