THE STORY:

Thousands of American troops are expected to return home to the U.S. from overseas THIS YEAR! Because of defense cutbacks, most will be looking for new careers in the midst of a struggling economy — with countless more troops following next year and the year after that!

Here are some startling statistics. Did you know:

* 67% of veterans experience a difficult transition from military to civilian life
* 69% of veterans report finding a job as the greatest hurdle in their transition
* When asked about the greatest challenges with finding a job, 62% cite the current economic situation, followed by explaining how military skills translate (60%) and competing with candidates who have been in the workforce longer (46%)?

Project Transition USA is the ONLY nonprofit that specializes in helping transitioning military veterans & their families find meaningful & rewarding civilian careers by learning to fully utilize the powerful networking & job search technology of LinkedIN!

Our trainers travel from base to base. We also need to create a virtual training element to compliment onsite training. Please give often and freely.
