HIRE OUR HEROES
The mission of Hire Our Heroes (HOH) is to empower veterans and employers with the knowledge, skills, and innovative tools necessary to optimize a strategic workforce. Employment is one of the top priorities after health amid a veterans transition. Over 1 Million veterans are unemployed. 1 Million are separating from the armed forces over the next 5 years. They need support just as they have supported us and our country’s freedom. After active duty, Veterans have no employment and have little guidance in the transition from active duty.
HOH administers the tools necessary to secure employment. The team of veterans is ready to Train, Mentor and Coach these transitioning veterans into the civilian workforce. They accomplish this by offering one-on-one monthly coaching and mentoring sessions. They enlist veterans and volunteers out of Corporate America, networking events, and group training across North America.
They're a non-profit organization operated and founded by veterans for veterans.
