Tesla is hiring all sorts of qualified people, but the company says it is making a "concerted effort to hire military veterans," as the CBS Evening News recently reported. Tesla CEO Elon Musk said in a statement:
Jared Bayer, formerly in the Air Force, is profiled the CBS piece, and he said the Model S release date is looming – but he's not worried. "That target date that we is have is coming pretty quick, and I'm going to do whatever I can to brining what I have to offer to make this product a success," he said.

Veterans are an ideal fit for Tesla. In addition to technical and mechanical skill, many of them have the ability to lead within a cooperative team – a trait that defines Tesla culture. Hiring veterans perfectly complements Tesla's mission to move toward energy security and stability.
