Hiring Our Heroes visits IMCOM headquarters
Ross Cohen, of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation, speaks to a working group discussing the USCOCF Hiring Our Heroes at U.S. Army Installation Management Command headquarters in May.

SAN ANTONIO (June 12, 2013) -- Representatives of Hiring Our Heroes, a nationwide initiative to help transitioning service members, veterans and military spouses find employment, visited the U.S. Army Installation Management Command headquarters to discuss how the organization could improve access to its online resources.

Hiring Our Heroes, a program of the nonprofit U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation, provides both hiring fairs and job search tools for past and present service members and their spouses.

The Hiring our Heroes group met with members of IMCOM's Army Career and Alumni Program team primarily to gather information for writing a step-by-step guide to using its online services.

The guide is designed to help navigate the Hiring Our Heroes website, which may prove to be a useful source of post-military service employment information and options.

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation is an affiliate of The U.S. Chamber of Commerce.

The Army Career and Alumni Program is a centrally funded and administered program that provides transition and job assistance services on major installations. The installation ACAP Transition Service Manager can provide information and assistance with many different resources, such as Hiring Our Heroes. ACAP counselors have professional experience from varying backgrounds, knowledge of best practices in resumes and job searches and an understanding of military careers as well as civilian careers.
