Call of Duty Endowment Has Placed Over 54,000 Veterans in High-Quality Jobs
The Call of Duty Endowment has announced that it has helped over 54,000 veterans find high quality careers, with 10,686 veterans being placed into well-paying jobs in 2018 alone.
Since it began operations in 2009, the Call of Duty Endowment has been focused in its mission to help find veterans high quality careers by “supporting groups that prepare them for the job market.”
According to the Call of Duty Endowment, one third of working veterans are underemployed, and the amount of veterans asking for help in this regard has increased 59%.
In 2018, the average cost-per-placement for veterans in jobs was $522 for the Endowment, which is “nearly six times as effective as United State Government efforts.”
93% of these job placements were for full-time work, with an average starting salary of over $58,000, and those in positions showed a 87% six-month retention rate.
The Endowment helped 11 organizations, awarding over $5.2 million in 2018 grants and $36 million in grants since 2009.
Lastly, if you are (or know someone who is) a veteran, transitioning service member, or service leave requiring assistance in looking for employment in the U.S. or U.K., be sure to visit the Veteran Support section of the Call of Duty Endowment website to get the help needed for job placement.
