Challenge: Between 2015 and 2018, 78,000 service members will transition out of the military through NC’s DoD installations, adding strength to the 778,000 veterans already living in North Carolina. North Carolina’s businesses strive to support these veterans and service members by leveraging their skills to fill critical talent requirements, but often lack the resources needed to identify and hire qualified military candidates.

Solution: North Carolina for Military Employment (NC4ME) is a comprehensive public-private partnership designed to make NC the number one state for military employment. Established by the Governor in 2015, NC4ME leverages existing workforce development resources and technology to implement an employer-centric strategy that:

  • Educates NC’s business leaders on the value of hiring a military workforce,
  • Shows small businesses and human resource professionals how to hire military personnel, and
  • Connects military talent to open jobs, education, and training opportunities in North Carolina.

By centering its focus on the “demand side” of the employment equation, NC4ME serves as a perfect complement to the vast number of programs currently preparing veterans for civilian employment and gives a much needed boost to military job seekers in North Carolina. More than just the “right thing” to do, hiring veterans drives business results for North Carolina’s employers and economic growth for our state. Please join us as we help NC businesses to better utilize the knowledge, skills, and abilities of our veterans and service members. Together we will make North Carolina the #1 state for military employment.

NC4ME is such an amazing resource and support for Military Members and their Spouses. I would encourage anyone searching for Employers who value the unique skill set our Military has to offer to attend a NC4ME Hiring Event.

I retired from the Marine Corps on May 25th. I attended the Greenville Hiring Event on June 5th and accepted a job offer one week later thanks to NC4ME. I look forward to starting my next career.

NC4ME is a great organization that Cisco has worked with several times. They deliver great events to connect veterans with resources they need to help find employment as well as succeed in life.
