Troops to Trades, a nonprofit scholarship and career assistance program, launched an enhanced web tool that will help business contractors recruit veterans.
“Veterans have the skills and training required by contractors in the residential PHCE service industries,” stated Renée Cardarelle, executive director of Troops to Trades. “Military-trained workers are highly accountable, and respect rules and procedures. Furthermore, they are sincere and trustworthy, qualities that are of immense value in our industries.”
Veterans can use the new website tools to learn about careers in the trades, apply for all-expense-paid training grants and scholarships, and connect with service industry businesses through the Business Network. Businesses interested in helping veterans find careers can be featured as a veteran-friendly employer.
