State Collection Service has recently joined the movement to hire our military heroes!

In conjunction with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation’s Hiring our Heroes program State has pledged to hire at least five heroes and five spouses of military heroes in 2014.

Hiring Our Heroes, was launched in 2011 as a nationwide initiative to help veterans, transitioning service members, and military spouses find 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.

By registering our company with Hiring our Heroes, State Collection Service is given access to their resume database and we have posted our job openings on their opportunities site.

To date, more than 23,000 veterans and military spouses have obtained jobs through Hiring Our Heroes. More than 1,500 businesses of all sizes have pledged to hire 411,000 heroes as part of the Hiring 500,000 Heroes campaign. Of those commitments, 255,000 hires have been confirmed with thousands more in the pipeline right now.

In March, Zach Metz, Madison Collector, joined Wisconsin Governor Walker and several hundred service men and women (Zach’s wife served in Afghanistan) who have obtained jobs after completing the Department of Labor’s job training program for military personnel and their families.

The USDOL has made job skills training available to service men and women and their spouses. Zach completed the training last August and was hired by State in September. Since the program’s inception, 500 service men/women and/or their spouses in Wisconsin have gotten jobs with the help of USDOL. Zach said the program was a big help to him, as he had never written a resume before.

Zach’s manager, Mike Paumen (site manager, Madison) was also invited to take part in the festivities with Zach’s family.
