Free Guides to help employers hire Veterans, Reservists and National Guard Members we have published for you to share with your Chamber members. The Guides cover federal tax benefits, best practices for recruiting veterans, and compliance with federal contractor regulations. The Guides are especially helpful to smaller employers which have limited HR resources.
So far, more than 125,000 copies of these free Guides have been downloaded by employers and associations across the U.S. Sponsors of the Guides include Phillips 66, The Marcus Foundation and DaVita Corporation. Two prestigious law firms donated their time to help us prepare the Guides – Baker & McKenzie, and Caplin & Drysdale.
There are nearly one million veterans and service members across the U.S. looking for full-time jobs that will take advantage of their training, skills and experience. More than 200,000 service members leave the military every year to transition to civilian employment.
Center for America (CFA), a nonprofit, nonpartisan 501(c)(3) organization, has published these Guides to help employers identify and hire veterans and service members more efficiently and faster. CFA coordinates the American Jobs for America’s Heroes campaign in which more than 2,000 U.S. employers are participating.
Please share the flyer with the employers in your network. Based on our employer surveys, many more employers will hire military candidates if they can connect with matching candidates within the limited staff time they have available for candidate searches.
The Guides can be easily downloaded free of charge from our home page at: http://www.CenterForAmerica.org Download links are included in the PDF. No registration is needed for the downloads.
In the interest of helping veterans and service members gain full-time employment, we hope you will use your communication channels to publicize these Guides to as many employers as possible.
