My Take - Next Steps for Vets

As we commemorate the sacrifices of our veterans this week, NBC News and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation have collaborated to launch a jobs and education resource portal to assist veterans and their families in their transition from military service to a civilian career. Next Steps for Vets centralizes unique tools and content, including a first-of-its-kind veteran resume engine and personal branding tool developed by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, plus a GI Bill calculator, job finder tools, job fair maps, e-mentoring opportunities, NBC News features, small business resources and military spouse resources.  With the unemployment rate for pockets of post-9/11 veterans higher than that of the national average and more than 1 million servicemen and women leaving active duty over the next five years, Next Steps for Vets is committed to supporting active duty military service members, reservists and veterans. These heroes deserve our support. 

I'm Vanessa Oubre, that's "My Take" what's yours?
