Mitchell International announced a partnership with Veterans2Work, an organization that helps returning veterans launch careers in the growth economy. As an employer partner, Mitchell International provides a supportive environment for veterans’ initial workplace experiences following service and offers a path to be hired as full-time employees.
“Well beyond gaining dedicated, high-potential employees, Mitchell International is showing how all companies can win by hiring veterans,” said Veterans2Work Founder John Reynolds. “Employers willing to invest in potential stand to reap outsized returns on human capital, while veterans can hope for a future not otherwise available to them. It’s a win for employers, veterans and our society.”
The 16-week Cloud Computing Career Launch program is provided free of charge to qualified veterans. Veterans are selected for their aptitude and desire to succeed, with no prior experience necessary. Veterans2Work provides basic business training, formal classroom instruction, individualized mentoring and coaching, job shadowing, placement support and other wrap-around services.
“We are committed to hiring returning military veterans,” said Pauline Mulvey, vice president of enterprise business technology at Mitchell International. “Our partnership with Veterans2Work helps us not only to cement our commitment, but also to understand how to tap the full potential of this amazing talent pool.”
Mitchell International will speak on a panel at Dreamforce in San Francisco on Sept. 15th to discuss its partnership with Veterans2Work.
