Continuum Veterans Foundation Helps 81 Veterans Secure Civilian Jobs through Hire Heroes USA

Continuum Veterans Foundation, helping returning troops find jobs in the IT industry, has confirmed that with a donation of $50,000 last November, Hire Heroes USA provided career coaching, resume revision and networking assistance to 142 transitioning troops, veterans and spouses, and confirmed 81 hired in civilian jobs. With the donation, the Continuum Veterans Foundation committed to helping at least 50 veterans finds jobs in 2014. Hire Heroes USA has well surpassed its goal with still half the year remaining.

“We are happy to have helped so many veterans in their quest to transition from military service to the civilian workforce through the support of the Continuum Veterans Foundation,” said Brian Stann, President and CEO of Hire Heroes USA. “Continuum sets a notable example of supporting our troops after their dedicated service to our country, and at a time when they need help identifying and expressing their value and skillsets to prospective employers. We look forward to continuing our mission in supporting our veterans and their spouses with the support of the Continuum Veterans Foundation.”

Based in Atlanta, Georgia, Hire Heroes USA is dedicated to creating job opportunities for U.S. military veterans and their spouses through personalized employment training and corporate engagement. Hire Heroes USA’s primary goal is to lower the veteran unemployment rate, measured by the organization’s ability to help veterans and their spouses gain employment by empowering them with the skills to successfully represent themselves on their resume, when delivering their value proposition and during interviews.

In July 2012, the Continuum Veterans Foundation was established by Continuum, the technology industry's only channel-exclusive provider of fully integrated managed IT services solutions, to provide financial support to local and national charities focusing on helping veterans find jobs in IT. Continuum is the primary donor to the Continuum Veterans Foundation with a percentage of revenue from its Service Desk going to the Foundation. As well, Continuum provides preferential consideration in hiring veterans at the company.

“We believe it is essential for successful companies to stand for a purpose beyond revenue and to support causes far greater than itself,” said Michael George, CEO at Continuum. “Continuum is committed to hiring veterans and calls upon other U.S. businesses to do the same. Uniquely skilled, veterans come with commitment, adaptability and loyalty, and because of their service to our country and preserving our freedom and independence, they deserve great opportunity. We are delighted that our investment in Hire Heroes USA has helped so many veterans transition to non-military jobs, and we look toward a hopeful future for our veterans.”

Hire Heroes USA assisted veterans with career transition primarily through its online and telephone coaching program as well as its in-person Warrior Transition Workshops. For more information on Hire Heroes USA, visit: https://www.hireheroesusa.org/. On Twitter, follow @HireHeroesUSA.
