In 2011, eleven companies, with JPMorgan Chase (JPM) taking the lead, teamed up to launch the "100,000 Jobs Mission," with a goal of hiring 100,000 veterans by 2020. In just four years (through the first quarter of 2015), the coalition has ballooned to 198 companies and shattered their initial goal, having now hired 241,833 veterans. The group upped their goal to 300,000 recently. Each company involved has its own individual sourcing and recruitment efforts to find veterans, but one of the primary vehicles of the program is JobsMission.com, where servicemembers can connect with these companies that are committed to hiring veterans.
