100,000 Jobs Mission Companies Hire A Total Of 140,832 Veterans Through First Quarter 2014

Companies in the 100,000 Jobs Mission hired a total of 140,832 U.S. military veterans through the first quarter of 2014 – putting the coalition well on the way to beat its doubled goal of hiring 200,000 by 2020.

A total of 143 additional companies have joined the initiative since its launch by 11 companies in 2011.

Sharing best practices

The companies met in Washington, D.C. yesterday to share best practices and discuss some of the challenges impacting veteran and military spouse employment.

“We continue to learn from experts and then refine our programs to help veterans and their spouses succeed in the civilian workplace,” said Maureen Casey, JPMorgan Chase’s Director of Military and Veterans Affairs.

General Peter Chiarelli, former Vice Chief of Staff of the U.S. Army who is now CEO of One Mind for Research, discussed de-mystifying post-traumatic stress with the 100,000 Jobs Mission. This reflects the depth of the 100,000 Jobs Mission’s commitment to understand and address issues affecting veterans.

"There is a misunderstanding that every service member with deployment history has TBI and/or PTS -- which is not the case. Of the small percentage that have been affected, and seek treatment, there is no reason they cannot perform in the workplace,” said General Chiarelli.

He added, “This is why coalitions such as the 100,000 Jobs Mission are important because they work to ensure that the invisible wounds of war do not brand a service member as damaged. These coalitions are open and willing to hiring veterans, realizing that they can be productive members of the workforce."

Hiring military spouses

The 100,000 Jobs Mission has expanded its efforts to hire military spouses too, including launching the Military Spouse Talent Exchange, or MTX, as part of this week’s Military Spouse Appreciation Day. Spearheaded by AT&T, the MTX online portal gets the resumes and profile information of spouse job seekers in front of participating 100,000 Jobs Mission companies.
