Veterans News

Job opportunities for veterans in the manufacturing sector should be abundant in the coming years, with a joint plan from four American companies helping to fuel that growth. Alcoa, Boeing, General Electric and Lockheed Martin are all buying into the "Get Skills to Work Coalition,” an organization designed to educate job seekers on techniques in the modern manufacturing industry, with a target of helping more than 15,000 veterans. Manufacturing employment has been one of the highest growth...
Added emphasis on military outreach in the workforce translates to increased managerial opportunities for veterans. The skills veterans in military training translate to readymade leaders in work. Employers are capitalizing on this more frequently, offering more pathways from the military to management. Eric Schelling, Director of Talent Acquisition for Home Depot, said that the military’s emphasis on leadership proves useful on the job. “Leadership is the No. 1 quality [veterans] bring [to a...
Servicemen and women dedicate years to our country, but as a result are removed from the workforce. To bridge that gap, career fairs and specialized training programs catered to military veterans provide opportunities for employment. Companies throughout the nation have tailored their pursuits of new employees to reach out to the military community. Home Depot has staffed over 35,000 from all branches of the United States military, and in October, increased the scope of its veteran employment...
Veterans returning home face many challenges that weren’t present when they were serving in the armed forces. Between adapting to civilian life, reacquainting with family and friends, and finding employment, the adjustment can be a diffi cult process. Unemployment numbers for veterans are dropping, but returning solders often struggle to compete for jobs due to lack of education, lack of experience or in some cases, the stigma of returning from overseas with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD...
A bill signed into law this autumn makes trucking career opportunities more accessible for active duty military. The Military Commercial Driver’s License Act of 2012 eases state restrictions on trucking licenses for servicemen and women, a gesture that should help alleviate two pinches on the job market. Service persons can apply experience gained driving military vehicles to the state requirements for licensing. The act also grants access to the transient military population holding residency...
Social media has become the important lifeline for military families. From keeping connected with deployed service members via Skype to building a support network through Facebook, modern technology has made communication easier for service members and their families. Now, several sites designed for active duty military members, veterans and their families are being used to help with things such as job searches, keeping in touch with fellow service members and even documenting military history...
For about two years, VA's online communications team has been closely tracking the advertising and recruitment efforts of for-profit schools looking to bring in GI Bill tuition dollars. In some cases, these schools have ensnared Veterans looking for info by using official-looking websites, which funneled potential recruits to those schools without any balanced, objective information. We aimed to get the word out in order to help Veterans make the best decision possible.This all came to a head...
If you could start over again, would you make the same decision? According to a recent survey, 78 percent of active duty military personnel say a resounding “yes.” When you think of the sacrifices that our men and women in uniform have made, especially in recent years, this overwhelming positive response may seem odd. But when you consider the dedication to duty and our nation that they exhibit, it’s not all that surprising. Yet, as war efforts draw down and the military reduces the size of its...
The 100,000 Jobs Mission was founded two years ago with a goal of hiring 100,000 military veterans to jobs by 2020. The coalition of businesses is well on its way to meeting that mark – and doing so well ahead of schedule. In fact, the collaborative group of 94 companies announced that through 2012, it was responsible for the hiring of 51,835 veterans. Job placement for veterans is a hot button issue in the current employment landscape. Despite decreases in unemployment since the peak of the...
Although veterans as a whole have a lower unemployment rate than the nation at large, younger veterans who served in the years following the Sept. 11 attacks are having a much harder time finding work. The unemployment rate for veterans between 18 and 24 exceeded 20 percent last year. It was also in double digits for those 25-34. The unemployment rate for both age groups was higher than for their nonveteran peers and much higher than the national average. The job problems for younger vets have...
