GM Helps Vets Find Jobs

gmWith higher-than-average unemployment among veterans and an estimated 1 million men and women leaving the military within the next five years, General Motors and the GM Foundation are helping to pay for job fairs across the country aimed at finding meaningful employment for returning veterans.

GM and the GM Foundation are contributing $250,000 to the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and National Chamber Foundation's Hiring our Heroes program, a national grassroots effort to find jobs for returning veterans and their spouses, many of whom have put their own careers on hold because of long separations and overseas deployments due to military service.

In addition, GM, suppliers and dealers will be able to participate in as many as 400 job fairs across the country.

GM also said it is recruiting qualified veterans to fill some salaried and hourly job vacancies and is encouraging its network of more than 7,000 suppliers and dealers to hire veterans and spouses for openings. GM will sponsor a booth at the National Veteran Small Business Expo and job fair, June 26-28 at Cobo Hall in Detroit. The UAW Veterans Department will also attend in support of the recruiting effort.

GM Talent Acquisition sends weekly updates on salaried job openings to state employment agencies, veterans' groups and outplacement firms, and uses analytics to refine and improve its outreach to veterans. The GM Careers website includes a Veterans section on the home page with a link to the company's recruiting calendar. As a corporate participant in the Army Pays program, all service member participants are guaranteed a job interview with GM.

GM will also market its GM Military Discount program and host Cell Phones for Soldiers drop-off points.
