Did you know veteran unemployment is hanging out at a low, low, low 2.9%? According to the latest figures from the U.S. Department of Labor, veteran unemployment is even lower than civilian unemployment. That is all good news for our community, right?
That is all good news unless you are the one who is transitioning out of the military this year. That is all good news unless you are one of the thousands upon thousands of unemployed veteran workers wishing for a different job. That is all good news unless you are one of the currently unemployed. If you are the one who does not have a job, then veteran (or spouse) unemployment can feel like it is at 100%.
That is why we are 100% on your side at the Veteran Employment Project. Each year, we work to bring you better, brighter master classes full of those invisible insights you need to get the job you really want. But we need a little help from you.
