Each video hangout is archived for future viewing, and live sessions are held multiple times each week.
Veterans and military spouses can apply for the Veteran Career Transition Program (VCTP), a tuition-free program run by Syracuse University with four tracks: technology, human resources, professional studies and independent study. Develop civilian job skills and the ability to translate military education, experience and training to the civilian workforce.
Member companies report their military hires on a quarterly basis to ensure progress against our goal. The Veteran Jobs Mission only reports the aggregate hiring number.
If your company has less than 10,000 employees, we still encourage you to submit an application form. We are in the process of developing a Veteran Jobs Mission small and medium-sized business alliance and would like to share more information with you.
