Vets In Tech Helps Veterans Land Technology Jobs

Vets in Tech helps veterans of the U.S. military transition into tech careers, whether they choose to enter existing tech companies or follow an entrepreneurial path. A lot of military personnel are trained to use technology in strategy, logistics, and repair, and the Vets in Tech platform can be helpful for leveraging those skills in the private sector.

It launched in San Francisco this summer, but Vets in Tech is making big headlines this Veteran’s Day. The platform aims to connect returning veterans with the technology community and offer support for education, entrepreneurship and employment.

Specifically, Vets in Tech aims to give back with a tech-specific network, resources and programs for U.S. veterans interested in pursuing technology careers. It’s a first-of-its-kind initiative that’s getting high praise from government officials.

“Vets in Tech is a much-needed veteran entrepreneurship initiative here in the ‘Innovation Capital of the World,’ combining three of my priorities: jobs, vets, and technology,” said San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee. “Returning men and woman who have served our country deserve a chance to get the good jobs in our new innovation economy.”
