Mitchell Supports Veterans2Work and its Employer Partnership Program with San Fran Event

Mitchell International announced on September 9 a partnership with Veterans2Work, an organization that helps returning veterans launch careers in the growth economy. As an Employer Partner, Mitchell International provides a supportive environment for veterans’ initial workplace experiences following service and offers a path to be hired as full-time employees.  

“Well beyond gaining dedicated, high-potential employees, Mitchell International is showing how all companies can win by hiring veterans,” explains Veterans2Work founder John Reynolds. “Employers willing to invest in potential stand to reap outsized returns on human capital, while veterans can hope for a future not otherwise available to them. It’s a win for employers, veterans and our society.”

Veterans2Work provides basic business training, formal classroom instruction, individualized mentoring and coaching, job shadowing, placement support and other wrap-around services.
