Support American Jobs for America’s Heroes
In 2016 tens of thousands of military service members will separate from duty, joining more than one million veterans already looking for full-time jobs. Many employers, including ARSA members, can do more with the right networks and information to hire veterans, reservists and national guardsmen.
Center for America (CFA), a nonprofit, is conducting a national employer survey to identify the specific problems different industries – and geographic locations – have in recruiting military candidates. To support this effort, CFA is collecting responses to a 10-minute online questionnaire. ARSA encourages its members to participate in this important work.

Submissions are due by April 1. The association’s code – to be entered in the first question – is A442.
CFA has been coordinating the American Jobs for America’s Heroes national campaign for four years under a written agreement with the Army National Guard in Washington, DC.
