Our nation's military members and veterans represent the best this country has to offer.

The 100,000 Jobs Mission began in 2011 as a coalition of eleven companies committed to hire 100,000 veterans by 2020. Since then, the coalition has grown to more than total_num_coalition_members companies that represent almost every industry in the American economy. Each company has committed to hire veterans, report their hiring number on a quarterly basis and share best practices. Together, the 100,000 Jobs Mission companies have hired 217,344 veterans, more than double the original goal. Building on this momentum, the 100,000 Jobs Mission has raised its goal. In total, the companies pledge to hire 300,000 U.S. military veterans.

The eleven founding member-companies include: AT&T, Broadridge Financial Solutions, Inc., Cisco Systems Inc., Cushman & Wakefield Inc., EMC Corporation, Iron Mountain Incorporated, JPMorgan Chase & Co., Modis, NCR Corporation, Universal Health Services, Inc. and Verizon Communications Inc.
