The 100,000 Jobs Mission has announced that its coalition of private companies has collectively hired more than 217,000 U.S. veterans through 2014 and is now committed to hire another 100,000 veterans for a total of 300,000. The 100,000 Jobs Mission was founded in 2011 by 11 companies that pledged to hire at least 100,000 veterans by 2020. The coalition reports its hiring results quarterly and shares best practices for hiring and retaining veterans in their organizations. Many of these can be found on its 100,000 Jobs Mission website at jobsmission.com. Since the coalition's establishment, membership has grown to 184 companies that represent nearly every industry in the U.S. economy. For more information, visit the 100,000 Jobs Mission website.
