10 Employment Resources for U.S. Military Veterans Seeking Work

In May, as parts of the country began to re-open after the first wave of COVID-19 infections, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics noted that unemployment numbers for U.S. veterans had gone down.

That drop was significant, from about 11.7 percent unemployment in April to 9 percent unemployment in May. It represents some 800,000 veterans who had applied for unemployment assistance in May, Leo Shane III at MilitaryTimes reports.

If you are a veteran searching for work, or if you know someone who is, here are 10 people and organizations that will be useful in a job search.

 

1. PAE

Today, the organization has a portfolio of projects around the world that employ more than 20,000 people, and PAE recruits veterans because of the unique skills they bring to every project.
