“Getting Veterans Back to Work” on Huffington Post
Today, as Veterans Day is observed across the United States, the Huffington Post features a blog by Tae Yoo, Senior Vice President for Corporate Affairs at Cisco, entitled “Getting Veterans Back to Work.”
According to Tae’s blog, approximately 1 million U.S. Armed Forces personnel will transition from military to civilian life within the next four years, including about 300,000 by August 2013. Unfortunately, military servicemen and servicewomen often have difficulty transitioning to jobs in the private sector once.
One reason: military job codes don’t easily translate to civilian job descriptions, making it difficult for veterans to find meaningful civilian careers that match their skills and interests.
