Task Force Movement: Life Cycle Pathways for Veterans and Military to Trucking and Cyber Security (TFM) announced a new partnership with Military Hire, an organization dedicated to connecting veterans with employers. Task Force Movement has already assisted hundreds of veterans, transitioning service members, and their families with obtaining training and credentials to secure employment in the civilian trucking and cybersecurity sectors.
This new partnership will help the Task Force facilitate employment on Military Hire’s website, which connects employers with veterans who have matching skills and emphasizes the value of hiring veterans. “This new partnership will help us efficiently connect even more veterans with good-paying jobs in the private sector,” said Task Force Chairman Patrick J. Murphy. “Thousands of employers rely on Military Hire’s database to find qualified and trustworthy candidates for open positions. We look forward to increasing our job placements for veterans with their help.”
“MilitaryHire is excited to be a part of this initiative with the Task Force Movement and the broader team it has assembled. This partnership will initially address two of the country’s most pressing skilled-candidate needs – logistics and cyber security workers. These needs will be met with what we consider the best trained candidates in the world – Veterans of the United States military,” said Jeff Finefrock,CEO, MilitaryHire. “Our focus in this partnership will bridge the path connecting Veterans to companies which covet their skills and discipline. We will then connect Veterans and employers to the TFM team’s solutions in skills assessment, training, education, apprenticeships and a full array of Veteran services. This will be a full-circle solution for Veterans and employers”
