It's almost the Fourth, and in honor of the holiday we've rounded up eight jobs (all now hiring) with serious patriotic bona fides. While we may have been a bit free-associative in our definitive of "patriotic" (meaning you'll find jobs helping veterans as well as a listing for a Harley-Davidson factory tour guide), each of these positions offers an opportunity to show your red, white, and blue stripes more than, say, an accounting gig.
And if you're not in the market for a job right now, the holiday weekend is still a great time to take stock of your life and career and make plans for the future. Check out our posts on getting it together here, here, and here--or just click through below to explore this week's patriotic jobs.
