Veterans returning to civilian life are sometimes faced with a simple question without an easy answer: “Now what?”
Some are re-entering the private sector with training in a field that will make it easy for them to land a job, but others may not have skills that are generally marketable. For those military personnel, it may be harder to find employment relevant to their training.
Within the confines of Camp Dawson last week, however, IBM and a group known as Corporate America Supports You announced another step in the business giant’s commitment to hire 2,000 U.S. veterans in the next four years. The collaboration of several organizations offers “new collar” technical training, certification and job placement assistance to veterans, including those in the Mountain State.
