Roughly 200,000 military personnel in the U.S. transition to civilian life each year, many of them ready to start the careers promised to them in recruitment.

Instead, one in three veterans are underemployed, and the Department of Defense and many organizations that support veterans are working to address it.

Today on All Sides with Ann Fisher, we discuss Efforts to address veteran underemployment.

Guests:

  • Ryan Blackburn, manager, Veterans Workforce Development, Ohio Department of Veteran Services
  • Chris Newsome, senior vice president, RecruitMilitary
  • John Boyes, Senior Human Resources Manager, Sealed Air
