Veteran Education Equals Opportunity – TODAY!

educationToday’s veterans are among the most educated, technically savvy, and diverse group of veterans in our nation’s history. Today’s veterans even, at their lowest levels of rank, have experience in working in diverse environments, putting leadership training to use in the workplace, working in trusted environments, and communicating clearly and directly. Veterans transitioning out of the military today have certifications and training in a wide variety of fields including, but not limited to, truck driving, mechanics, engineering, IT and computer networking, IT security, and much more.

Today 82.8% of military officers have a bachelors degree or higher and about 30% of veterans over the age of 25 have a bachelors degree or higher. 

Many veterans wonder what they can do for a career if they do not have an education or enough education. There are actually many options. With the military educational money that veterans have there are opportunities in traditional colleges as well as other educational programs. Traditional colleges generally have a veteran representative that can help veterans navigate the application process and access their military education money.

Lifehacker just released a great article that can introduce veterans to just some of what they can do with just an associates degree. Check it out here…

If you are not sure if you should go for that two year degree / associate’s degree then read this article over at Military.com – 3 Reasons to Get Your Associate Degree

Check out some of these great opportunities. While they are in the San Antonio area they can give you the details you need to go and look for something in your area that is similar. Programs such as these exist in many cities across the U.S.

Attention Veterans: Looking to Be Your Own Boss?

VETERAN OWNED BUSINESS

Are you a veteran or transitioning military that is looking to be your own boss?

Are you interested in starting your own business or owning a franchise?

If so, we would like to share some information with you today.

Forward March Inc. is an SDVOB, that is a Service Disabled Veteran Owned Business. We are a company of veterans helping veterans. We take a lot of pride in our work and in the fact that we are in the ranks of our military service brothers and sisters who have started their own business. As of 2012, according to the SBA, veterans made up 9.1 percent of all business owners. According to the George Bush Institute, and many other research groups, veteran owned businesses are far more likely to succeed than non-veteran owned businesses.
