Leading Military-Serving Nonprofits Achieve New Heights in Veteran Employment Assistance

February 16, 2022

VetJobs and Military Spouse Jobs, two leading nonprofits providing career readiness and job placement assistance to the military community, announced that they are the first nonprofits to surpass 75,000 verified, military-affiliated hires. 

 

In 2021, the groups achieved another milestone when their accomplished training departments helped military-affiliated job seekers complete more than 20,000 training courses in their skills advancement platforms, underscoring their commitment to improving employment outcomes.

 

“These last couple of years have been challenging for employment, and we’re thrilled for our years of partnership with such a high-performing organization, VetJobs, dedicated to supporting service members and veterans.” said Dan Goldenberg, Executive Director of the Call of Duty Endowment. “They are most deserving of recognition for these accomplishments and the positive impact they have on our military and veteran communities.”

 

The amazing success and incredible impact on the military community is, in part, due to various targeted campaigns and partnerships focusing on specific military communities.  

 

“With almost two decades of service to our military communities, VetJobs and Military Spouse Jobs embraces not just the employment and career readiness needs of the military community as a whole, but also the unique needs found geographically and specific to each military branch and component,” explains Danielle Trosclair, Director of Community Engagement.  This focus has led to dedicated initiatives in Pittsburgh and Philadelphia, as well as an entire program committed to the National Guard – the National Guard Employment Network.   

 

The purpose of NGEN is to provide the National Guard community with employment support resources to help manage unemployment and underemployment that Guard families are facing.  Additionally, NGEN has identified what is truly necessary to successfully place our Guard-affiliated into jobs. The NGEN team is backed by accomplished recruitment specialists who work one-on-one with corporate recruiters to expand employment opportunities for military-affiliated applicants.  All services provided to both the jobseeker, as well as to employers, are at no cost.

 

The National Guard and Reserves is the largest professional network in the country.  There is a guard or reserve family in every zip code across America,” said Danette Hayes, NGEN Program Manager.  Because of their civilian and military training, Guard and Reserve candidates are ideal for leadership, operational success and emerging markets. We connect employers directly with the ideal candidates who are trained to meet and exceed the employer’s expectations.”
