FL Group to Match Returning Vets to Civilian Jobs

January 18, 2008 (PLANSPONSOR.COM) - A newly launched Jacksonville, Florida, organization says it is available to help wounded returning military service members find civilian jobs.

The Warriors to Work (WtoW) program will help the wounded vets with resume drafting and interviewing skills and find open positions fitting the veteran’s strengths, the group said in a news release. Those needing additional skills will be referred to an appropriate training program.

“The Warriors to Work program is designed to be an all-purpose job-hunting and skill-building toolbox for injured service members,” stated Program Director Ryan Kules, in the announcement. “An integral part of transitioning back into civilian life and rebuilding one’s self image after injury is developing job skills and eventually a life-long career path. This program aims to assist in that process.”
