Military veterans bring valuable skills, experience, and qualifications to the civilian workforce. But matching talent to open positions has proved daunting for both veterans and hiring companies. The Cisco Veterans Program uses technology and human networks to better connect returning service members to civilian opportunities.
Teamwork and leadership skills, the ability to learn quickly and work under pressure, a strong work ethic and dedication to the mission. Today’s fast-moving businesses seek workers with these skills and veterans have them, but no easy way to communicate their experience. Cisco Veterans Program connects returning service members with educational opportunities and rewarding careers.
Our Veterans Program focuses on both recruiting and supporting veterans to ease their transition to civilian life. Cisco is a founding member of the 100,000 Jobs Mission, a coalition of companies committed to hiring 300,000 veterans by 2020, and our Veterans Enablement and Troop Support (VETS) employee organization provides mentoring and support to active and retired military personnel and their families.
We know that successful, well-placed veterans within Cisco show our partners, customers, and other companies the value veterans bring to the workplace. Our investment in the innovative Futures, Inc. Pipeline has potential for matching skills and jobs across many sectors.
* Futures’ newest military talent exchange platform is called US Military Pipeline and is now available to all active duty personnel, reservists, members of the National Guard, and military dependents
