CAMPAIGN: IBM 2015 Corporate Responsiblity Report


Transitioning to the civilian workforce is a significant adjustment for men and women who have served in the military. After an extended period of time away from civilian life, veterans often need guidance and support to identify how to best apply their extraordinary skills and service experience to the corporate sector. Despite some hardships veterans have encountered in securing employment in the civilian workforce post-9/11, a recent report by the Federal Bureau of Labor Statistics shows we are headed in the right direction.

On Citizen IBM, Global Citizenship Initiatives Vice President Diane Melley writes about how IBM and our public- and private-sector partners are helping veterans successfully apply their technological and leadership-based skill sets to serve as data analysts within some of America's largest and fastest-growing industries.
