100,000 Jobs Mission Companies Hire More Than 160,000 U.S. Military Veterans Through Second Quarter 2014

Companies in the 100,000 Jobs Mission hired a total of 161,752 U.S. military veterans through the second quarter of 2014. In addition, the coalition has grown from 11 founding members to 165 companies that represent almost every industry in the American economy.

“More companies have recognized the value of our coalition and are stepping up to make a difference in the lives of our nation’s veterans,” said Maureen Casey, Director of Military and Veterans Affairs for JPMorgan Chase.

Helping Servicemembers through their Transition

The 100,000 Jobs Mission is committed to hiring veterans, but also to helping servicemembers through their transition back to civilian life. The recently published, “ Transition Field Guide for Veterans: Education, Employment and Entrepreneurship after Service,” is a resource that helps transitioning military members and veterans develop post-military career plans long before they separate from the service. The Transition Field Guide outlines four main paths toward meaningful employment: immediately entering the job market, pursuing higher education as a path to employment, obtaining helpful certifications or further training to increase competitiveness, and tips on starting a business. Each path offers a recommended timeline prior to transition as well as helpful tips to consider along the way. Visit to learn more.

Maureen Casey adds, “Our aim is to help position veterans for success in their post-military lives through employment resources like the Transition Field Guide.”
