Hiring and Educating Veterans the Goal of a New National Program

The current national elections has made veteran unemployment a major topic of discussion. In 10 cities, manufacturing companies have started a new program to help veterans find education for jobs in high-tech manufacturing such as welding.

General Electric and Military Families at Syracuse University have currently developed a reference guide that informs manufacturers about educating veterans with the necessary specialized skills needed to fill a growing need in the industry. Participating companies will receive a guide to help veterans find jobs by 2014.

Along with General Electric, Alcoa Inc., Boeing, and Lockheed Martin will be involved. The first group of veterans will enroll in January at Cincinnati State Technical and Community College in Ohio.
