Hiring Our Heroes
The U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation’s Hiring Our Heroes (HOH) initiative launched in March 2011 as a nationwide effort to connect veterans, service members, and military spouses with meaningful employment opportunities. Working with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s vast network of state and local chambers and strategic partners from the public, private, and non-profit sectors, our goal is to create a movement across America in hundreds of communities where veterans and military families return every day.
Military Spouse Fellowship Program
The Hiring Our Heroes Military Spouse Fellowship Program (MSFP) provides military spouses with professional training, networking, and hands-on experience in the civilian workforce. The professional development and direct connection to local employers offered through the program enable military spouses to quickly build their networks and gain localized job experience. Participating host companies gain access to a highly skilled and educated talent pool. Visit the MSFP webpageto learn more.
Military Skills Translator
Service members have a wealth of valuable knowledge and skills that they’ve acquired, but sometimes it can be hard to translate those skills to the civilian workforce. Check out the Military Skills Translator from Military.com—it matches a veteran’s military occupation code (MOS, AFSC, and Rating), sub-specialties and other professional military skills to civilian job opportunities.
