NVTC President and CEO Bobbie Kilberg speaks at the U.S. Tech Vets launch in Las Vegas on Jan. 8, 2014.

When we launched the NVTC Veterans Employment Initiative in August 2013, at an event that included supporting remarks from Gov. Bob McDonnell and Sen. Mark Warner, our goal was to support our member companies in their efforts to hire, train and retain qualified veteran employees. The NVTC Veterans Employment Initiative is about bringing together the technology business community with academic institutions and policymakers to create an ecosystem where veterans’ valuable skills and talents are matched to private sector needs.

Our member companies believe overall workforce development is one of the greatest long-term challenges facing our technology community. Over the last six months, hundreds of NVTC members have signed on to the Initiative because they recognize that veterans have tremendously valuable skills and experience, such as leadership, teamwork, self-discipline, problem-solving, quick-thinking and experience working in a mission-focused environment.

Now, we’re delighted to be partnering with Monster, the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA) and 10 other national technology associations to expand this effort nationally, with the goal of connecting thousands more veterans with jobs in the technology sector. Launched today at the 2014 International CES in Las Vegas, U.S. Tech Vets expands upon NVTC’s online resource and job board, with the addition of jobs from 10 other national technology associations. NVTC member companies will see their jobs reaching an expanded audience through this new site, since jobs posted to NVTC’s www.novatechvets.org site will be cross posted on the new site…for FREE!

There’s never been a better time to get involved in the NVTC Veterans Employment Initiative. Find out more at www.nvtc.org/veterans or email us at veterans@nvtc.org.
