Veterans have historically been challenged with unemployment after every major conflict concludes. The Wounded Warrior Project, as of 2015, estimates that approximately 16.6% of non-active duty service members are unemployed—Three times the national average. Central Valley employers and business organizations ironically have also emphasized the fact that they actively pursue military veterans as job candidates, and value them as talented, hard-working employees.
The MJC VRC has responded to this need with a new initiative as an internship opportunity known as Project TITON (Time In / Time Out Now), and wishes to make the connection.
Project TITON begins in fall 2016 and includes:
- Monthly cash stipend
- One paid internship with one of several local companies
- Opportunity for full-time employment.
- Professional development workshops
- Resume/interview package
- Face time with Deans and staff in the department of your major
- Case manager for future employment
- Networking opportunities
