A new survey from Careerbuilder says that 41 percent of employers have hired U.S. veterans or members of the National Guard in the last six months, and about 21 percent are actively recruiting U.S. vets and Guard members for open positions.
Careerbuilder has launched a new Web site specifically for veterans: MissionGetHired.com.
Unemployment for returning veterans stands about 11.2 percent nationally — 4 percent higher than last year and about 2 percent higher than the overall national jobless rate. The jobs employers are trying to fill: IT, engineering, management and sales.
