in Hiring,Human Resources

The American Red Cross has be­­come the first organization other than a government agency to partner with the Uncle Sam’s VA for Vets program, which trains veterans in preparation for high-technology jobs outside the military.

The aim: to hire more veterans into the Red Cross workforce as phle­boto­­mists, development officers and IT pros.

The program initially trained vets for jobs at the Department of Veterans Affairs and has expanded into the Departments of Homeland Security, Agriculture and Interior. The Red Cross is the program’s first nongovernment employer.
