ON January 22, 2013, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid introduced the Putting Our Veterans Back to Work Act of 2013. This bill would “reauthorize training and employment services created by the VOW to Hire Heroes Act.” The press release for this bill can be accessed at Senator Bernie Sanders Press Release.
It is common that I will come across government programs, not-for-profit organizations, and private companies that are specifically targeting jobs for veterans. For example, Walmart just announced a new hiring initiative for veterans that can be accessed at http://walmartcareerswithamission.com/. Moving forward I will tag any related post as “Veterans Employment” and hopefully create a comprehensive list of resources available for unemployed or underemployed veterans.
