Task Force Movement Report Builds on Biden-Harris Trucking Action Plan to Move Military-Connected Community into High-Demand Truck Driving Jobs

As of last year, America faced a shortage of 80,000 truck drivers, while the cybersecurity industry is experiencing a shortage of 40,000 professionals in the federal government and 700,000 in the private sector. Moreover, military spouses face a 22 percent unemployment rate, many of whom have critical skills that could be utilized for these jobs. Within weeks of its establishment, TFM teamed up Indeed and Hiring Our Heroes to launch Drive for 500, funding 500 Class-A commercial driver’s license (CDL) training scholarships for veterans and their spouses. As a result, 500 veterans have already matriculated through the program and received their CDL license, placing them one step closer to high-demand, high-paying transportation careers. Later, the Department of Transportation (DOT), along with private sector partners, stepped up to provide millions of dollars in scholarships, including Operation Open Road, which provided scholarships for Afghan SIV holders.

 

About MilitaryHire & the TFM Program

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,CRO, 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”0
