Veterans & Technology

On Memorial Day, we remember the men and women who died in military service for the United States. We appreciate their service and acknowledge they gave all for our country.

7CTOs would also like to honor our active military and veterans with today’s brief blog post highlighting some ways the IT community can help returning vets who want to work. As most of us know, it can be a tough road to civilian life for many of our ex-military after they get back stateside. Some companies, like Microsoft, have created programs to help veterans transition into jobs at the software behemoth.

Though VetsInTech.com hasn’t updated their site since early May, it’s loaded with helpful information, news and other resourcs to help veterans. If there’s anybody out there with the time and inclination to help this promising site with content, it might be bandwidth well-spent.

Creating IT Futures likewise has information about programs and processes for helping veterans get re-acclimated stateside, get training and find jobs.

Here are links to a few more:

7CTOs supports our veterans and hopes our peers in the IT industry will strive to do the same. If you have any suggestions or additions to the short list we’ve provided here, we welcome the input.
