Milicruit, the recognized leader for virtual career fairs for the military community, reports more than 5,000 veterans and military spouses have been hired in the past 3 months by the employers who have signed on for the 10,000 Jobs Challenge.
In March of this year, Milicruit in partnership with MOAA, DirectEmployers Association of America and dozens of leading employers formed the 10,000 Jobs for Veterans and Military Spouses Challenge http://www.10000jobs.com. As the name implies, the challenge hoped to find at least 10,000 jobs for the veteran community by the end of 2013. In its first 3 months, the employers have reported hiring more than 5,000 veterans and military spouses.
“When we come up with the idea to put a tangible number of hires in the challenge, we thought that 10,000 was doable, but an aggressive goal, and to see the outstanding commitment these employers are making to reach out and encourage veterans and military spouses to join their company is just overwhelming. The employers recognize that hiring veterans and military spouses is much more than the moral thing to do, it is probably one of the best business decisions a company can make given the skills, education, training, and character they bring to the workforce,” said Kevin O’Brien, VP Business Development, Milicruit.
The employers who have already signed up for the 10K Challenge are: Aetna, American Red Cross, AOC Solutions, Arise Virtual Solutions Inc., Camping World and Good Sam, CBRE, CHSI Medical, Citi, Convergys, DaVita, DISH Network, Dr Pepper Snapple Group, General Motors, Graybar, IHG, IM Flash Technologies, Level 3 Communications, Lowe’s, Northwestern Mutual Life, Penske Truck Leasing, Pepsi Beverages Company, Pfizer, Philips, Progressive, Sears, State Street Corporation, The SI Organization, TSA, Union Pacific, Waste Management, and Xerox Business Services.
“Recruiting and hiring veterans is an ongoing focus for us,” said Ken Hurley, Senior Vice President of Human Resources at Penske Truck Leasing. “We’re proud to be working with Milicruit and the other employers on the 10,000 Jobs Challenge. These online career fairs have provided an outstanding and convenient way for our recruiters to connect with prospective associates.”
