U.S. Military Veterans Returning from Overseas Finding Help with Their Job Search

Posted September 28, 2011 by

You have probably heard about how our brave men and women who have proudly served our country are struggling to find jobs.  Unfortunately, this is another effect of the sluggish economy which has affected so many people in the U.S. However, one company is doing its part to help military veterans in their job searches.

For too many military veterans returning from Iraq and Afghanistan, finding a civilian job has been difficult. GE, as a company, is trying to change that, participating this year in over 100 career fairs hosted by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and Student Veterans of America and focused solely on getting veterans back to work. Those newly recruited servicemen and women will join over 10,000 U.S. military veterans currently employed by GE (about one in every 14 GE employees in the U.S. is a vet). “We’re expecting an influx of troops coming back from Iraq and Afghanistan, and they need jobs,” said Kris Urbauer, program manager for GE’s veterans’ initiatives.
