Donation Will Help Match 50 Veterans to IT Industry Jobs
Continuum Veterans Foundation, helping returning troops find jobs in the IT industry, donated $50,000 to Atlanta, Georgia-based Hire Heroes USA, an organization dedicated to creating job opportunities for U.S. military veterans and their spouses through personalized employment training and corporate engagement. The Continuum Veterans Foundation was established by Continuum, the technology industry's only channel-exclusive provider of fully integrated managed services, in July 2012 to provide financial support to local and national charities that focus on helping veterans find jobs.
Many companies pay little more than lip service to helping military veterans obtain civilian employment.
But one company is pledging significant revenues and hiring commitments to help the veteran cause.
Continuum, a leading MSP software and services provider based in Boston, MA, is donating a percentage of all new revenue from its expanded Service Desk offerings to the Continuum Veterans Foundation, a 501(c)(3) organization established by the company with the expressed mission of supporting the transition of former military personnel to civilian careers.
Roughly 1 million U.S. veterans are returning from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. How will those U.S. veterans find jobs - especially amid such a weak U.S. job market? Continuum, the MSP software provider, wants to lend a hand. The company is launching a non-profit organization called Continuum Veterans Foundation. Here's the strategy.
