Companies in the 100,000 Jobs Mission hired a total of 140,832 U.S. military veterans through the first quarter of 2014, putting the coalition well on the way to beat its doubled goal of hiring 200,000 by 2020. A total of 143 additional companies have joined the initiative since its launch by 11 companies in 2011.
The 100,000 Jobs Mission has expanded its efforts to hire military spouses too, including launching the Military Spouse Talent Exchange, or MTX, as part of this week’s Military Spouse Appreciation Day. The MTX online portal gets the resumes and profile information of spouse job seekers in front of participating 100,000 Jobs Mission companies.
