Employment is a top issue for post-9/11 veterans. That's why the Bush Institute has partnered with the U.S Chamber of Commerce to create the VET Roadmap to better equip vets to join the civilian workforce.
The purpose of the Veteran Employment Transition (VET) Roadmap is to provide transitioning service members and veterans a resource so that they are better equipped to navigate that landscape and succeed in the civilian workforce. The VET Roadmap captures and consolidates essential steps with best-in-class resources and tools. It is not intended to replace existing efforts, but to clarify the process, and aggregate the most effective resources at their disposal from across the public, private, and non-profit sectors.
The George W. Bush Institute’s Military Service Initiative (MSI) partnered with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation’s Hiring Our Heroes initiative to work with a host of public, private, and non-profit sector partners to capture and consolidate the essential steps transitioning service members and veterans must take to do their part to bridge the gap between supply and demand. By clearly and concisely illustrating the employment transition process for warriors, this coalition seeks to educate, inform, empower, and call to action all key stakeholders in how they can help close the veteran employment gap and narrow the civilian-military divide.
