The Government Technology and Services Coalition has partnered with the Non Commissioned Officers Association in an effort to help former military personnel find employment opportunities and transition to the civilian workforce.
Both organizations aim to hold events as well as offer training and skills assessment services intended for transitioning veterans, NCOA said Wednesday.
GTSC plans to collaborate with the group’s member companies to evaluate their labor pools, identify future workforce needs and match suitable transitioning veterans with career opportunities as part of the effort.
“The contractors that participate with GTSC are working with all of the federal agencies charged with this mission and understand that veterans are the ideal employees who understand mission, often have security clearances, and are committed to our nation,” said GTSC CEO Kristina Tanasichuk.
“Our partnership with GTSC supports our mission of finding the right type of employment for our transitioning military members and assuring that the agencies charged with protecting our nation have the best, most committed individuals supporting them,” said Jon Ostrowski, NCOA’s executive director.
Ostrowski added the association has hosted career expos for U.S. veterans over the past four decades.
