With a new look comes new features and content, but our mission remains the same: advancing the inclusion and advancement of U.S. veterans for America’s workforce.
It is 2011. A new decade in a new millenium. But with it has sadly come new conflicts and wars. In our country’s time of need its brave sons and daughters took up the call and fought where they were needed. But now they are finally coming home. And with their arrival they are shedding the fatigues and uniforms, dropping the armaments, and seeking to transition back into normal life.
They are looking for work.
While many companies actively recruit former servicemen and women there is still a staggering amount of unemployed veterans in our nation. And yet, soldiers are among the most prized of applicants to businesses and employers. Veterans are highly trained, motivated, disciplined, versatile, and leaders. Companies and corporations desire these skills and abilities for their workforce. So why is there this discrepency?
Because both employers and veteran job-seekers are often looking in the wrong place: namely not at each other.
This is why we display job listings and career opportunities for veterans, all from employers that are specifically hiring former soldiers. Now companies find the talent they’re hoping to attract and our servicemen and women find work that appreciates them.
But veteran inclusion isn’t just about job placement. Education is, and always will be, an all-important priority. Scholarships, open houses, college recommendations — these are all resources to be tapped. Countless organizations across the nation provide help benefits and programs for individuals in need. We gather these resources in one place for you. Check up on job fairs and career expos near you, find training and education, and stay up to date with the latest news. Education isn’t just about schooling, it is about knowledge.
Job information and specifications, career listings, business advice, job-seeking tips, these are all bits of knowledge and in today’s Information Age knowledge is power. We display the knowledge you need so you can take it as wisdom to the workplace.
Come. Learn. Thrive.
