Not every military job has a civilian application.
But, military skills, including leadership and organization, can apply to ‘real world’ jobs.
And, there is a strong movement to make sure veterans, and their spouses, are aware of that. Veteran’s day serves as a launch for a new program, “Hiring Our Heroes”.
The program features job fairs around the country for veterans and their families. Veterans who have recently left military service have an unemployment rate of nearly 12% well above the national average. You can find out more on the ‘Hiring Our Heroes’ program online at www.uschamber.com/veterans
