Group Urges Employers to "Hire A Hero"

October 12, 2007  | 

When men and women return from serving in the military, they often have a difficult time re-entering the workforce. One organization has created a meeting place for former military and prospective employers, and it's free to all involved.

Hire A Hero is a non-profit, Web-based military community with a mission to help its members network in order to find quality training and career opportunities. The program is open to every American who wants to take action and give back to those who have served.

"Many Americans don't support the war, but want to support our troops," says Dan Caulfield, executive director of Hire A Hero. "One of the best ways to say thank you for serving is to help our veterans and National Guard members find meaningful employment when they return home from battle."

Hire A Hero depends on donations and on volunteers who work in a variety of roles from their hometowns across the country to keep the program free for everyone to use. A recent internal survey revealed that jobseekers who networked with more than six other users on hireahero.org had an employment success rate of more than 30 percent.
