NORA Partners With 'American Jobs for America's Heroes' Campaign to Post Jobs for 60,000 Unemployed National Guard Members
NORA member companies can post job openings at no cost

Haymarket, VA (September 11, 2012) – As NORA remembers September 11, the association and its members continue to show support for the men and women in the military. Today, NORA is joining with The National Guard, Center for America, the Military Spouse Corporate Career Network and Corporate America Supports You to support the "American Jobs for America’s Heroes” campaign to encourage NORA member companies to post jobs for 60,000 unemployed National Guard members.

With unemployment among the 358,000 serving National Guard members at or above 15 percent in most areas of the nation, the campaign provides direct services to connect the trained workforce in the Guard with employers in need of skilled workers and professionals. These trained and reliable candidates bring leadership, teamwork and responsibility to their employers.

With this partnership, NORA members will be able to post jobs at no charge on the National Guard Employment Network portal. Qualified National Guard members and other veterans will be actively matched to fill posted job openings.

"The motto of the National Guard is ‘Always Ready, Always There’,” said NORA Executive Director Scott D. Parker. "Members of the National Guard have proudly been there for their states and our nation. It is now time for industry to be there for them. NORA is honored to partner with the American Jobs for America’s Heroes campaign by providing access for our members to post jobs through this program.”

"One of the biggest challenges facing employers right now is finding skilled workers and professionals to fill open jobs,” said Center for America President Steve Nowlan. "Thousands of trained, skilled men and women in the National Guard, veterans, and their spouses can help fill that need. Families and communities will benefits from the economic boost. ‘American Jobs for America’s Heroes’ brings together employers and Guard members in a practical way that works.”
