We connect the military community with civilian companies to create economic opportunity and a strong and diversified workforce. Through local programs and events, we’re working to create a movement across America.
The Hiring Our Heroes Corporate Fellowship Program is an innovative 12-week program that provides transitioning service members with professional training and hands-on experience in the civilian workforce. The professional development offered through the program prepares candidates for a smooth transition into meaningful civilian careers. Participating corporations benefit by gaining access to the best and brightest transitioning service members, while also developing a more comprehensive understanding of the veteran job market.
The Hiring Our Heroes Military Spouse Fellowship Program (MSFP) is a cutting-edge initiative that provides military spouses with professional training, networking, and hands-on experience in the civilian workforce. The professional development and direct connection to local employers offered through the 6-week program enable military spouses to quickly build their networks and gain localized job experience. Participating host companies gain access to a highly skilled and educated talent pool.
The Hiring Our Heroes Caregiver Fellowship Program is a brand-new initiative that provides caregivers of wounded warriors with professional training, networking, and hands-on experience in the civilian workforce. The professional development and direct connection to local employers offered through the program enable caregivers to quickly build or re-build their networks and gain localized job experience. Participating host companies gain access to a highly skilled and educated talent pool.
The Hiring Our Heroes Military Spouse Professional Network (MSPN) provides military spouses with career development and networking opportunities in military communities around the world. An integral part of Hiring Our Heroes’ Military Spouse Program, MSPN will empower military spouses at a grassroots level year-round.
Local MSPN events and programming connect military spouses with established networks, giving military spouses access to local business leaders, peers, and mentors, and support in their career development. MSPN also provides military spouses with online career development resources. Military spouses in similar occupations support each other in online communities and share career advice to enhance the career prospects of members of the community.
On August 28, 2018, the U.S Chamber of Commerce Foundation’s Hiring Our Heroes, in collaboration with the City of San Diego and the Greater San Diego Regional Chamber of Commerce, launched the nation’s fifth Military Spouse Economic Empowerment Zone (MSEEZ) in San Diego, California.
Established to connect military spouses with companies committed to hiring, MSEEZ are collaborative efforts among the local business, civic, and military communities that establish employment networks in municipalities around the country.
