Get Skills to Work Program for Veterans

soldier returning home now can get skills to work

Here’s a great way to welcome our soldiers home! Three cheers for a new collaborative program between GE, Boeing, Lockheed Martin, Alcoa, and the Manufacturing Institute to “prepare and place veterans in long-term careers. With an estimated 600,000 open advanced manufacturing jobs across America, this program is committed to closing the gap and creating new futures for those who worked to make ours better.”

At Amtec, we talk a lot about taking advantage of transferable skills to help close the skills gap in light of the shortage of knowledge workers. Here is a perfect example of providing proven employees, who already have great knowledge, with the training to apply their skills to a different field. If you know someone who has returned from serving our country and hasn’t yet been able to find his or her place in the workforce, please spread the word. Perhaps the Get Skills to Work program can help!
