Helping Veterans Connect to Companies
Coalition works to translate military skills to civilian jobs
By Jordan Graham
A coalition of Bay State companies, advocates and veterans is aiming to help vets translate skills they already have to the offices of tech companies.
“The goal is to help employers connect more effectively with a growing number of veterans who are reentering the workforce,” said Chris Anderson, president of the Massachusetts High Technology Council and one of the leaders of New England Tech Vets. “No matter what a veteran did in the military, there is an equitable civilian skill.”
