The Value of a Veteran is a human resources training and consulting firm designed to help large companies recruit and retain veterans in the workforce. In March of this year, they launched a new program called Military Skilled Trades (MST) to help veterans fill thousands of skilled trades jobs in the government and private sectors.
MST was created as a solution for both veterans as well as government agencies and corporations who were facing difficulties hiring skilled trades workers through traditional recruitment channels and job fairs. Military personnel who have or are transitioning to the workforce are paired with jobs based on their skills and backgrounds in disciplines such as warehousing, welding, fabrication, coating/painting, electrical, maintenance, HVAC, plumbing, pipefitting, construction, rigging, telecommunications, truck driving, and industrial machinery. MST hosts over 20 in-person career fairs a year in addition to a resume database of military service members and veterans.
Veterans and employers can find more information and registration links by visiting militaryskilledtrades.com. For veterans looking to learn skilled trades such as HVAC repair and installation, Perfect Technician Academy always has availability in our classes.
