If you know a Veteren who’s looking for a job here are a few programs that is offered by the government. Please forward the link to anyone who’s looking for help!
President Obama believes that no veteran should have to fight for a job at home after they fight for our nation overseas. The American Jobs Act includes two tax credits that would benefit firms that hire unemployed veterans and veterans with service-connected disabilities. But our unemployed veterans can’t wait for Congress to act, so the Obama Administration has created the following resources to help veterans translate their military skills for the civilian workforce and provide veterans with new tools to aid their search for jobs:
Employers looking to hire veterans
The Veterans Job Bank connects unemployed veterans to job openings with companies that want to hire them. The Obama Administration partnered with leading job search companies to create a new, easy to use online service that enables employers to “tag” job postings for veterans. It launched with more than 500,000 job listings, a number that will continue growing as more companies tag the job postings on their own websites and add them to the Veterans Job Bank.
My Next Move for Veterans is an easy-to-use online tool created by the Department of Labor that allows veterans to enter information about their experience and skills in the field, and match it with civilian careers that put that experience to use. The site also includes information about salaries, apprenticeships, and other related education and training programs.
