About Us



In February 2012, The Adjutant General (TAG) of the California National Guard, Major General David S. Baldwin, worked with his staff and the Speaker of the Assembly, John A. Perez, to tackle the California National Guard unemployment rate. The goal was to reduce it by 25% in a year, which was accomplished and exceeded. To date, Work For Warriors has assisted with the placement of  over 6,000 Service Members, Veterans and Spouses into gainful employment. Additionally, Work For Warriors has over 500 business partners throughout the state.

We succeed when you succeed

“You guys helped me land a job at Amtrak! I’m so thankful for what you do.  I could never put it into words how much I appreciate it. I have a real career for the first time in my life because of your organization. I am currently working as a material controller, and after one year can lateral throughout the company. Everyone I have met is incredible, almost all prior military, and they already feel like family in week two.

Thank you a million times over and keep up the great work.”

“Thank you Work for Warriors for connecting me with Northrop Grumman. I am glad to inform you that I had an interview with them two weeks ago, and also scheduled for another interview this week. I am hoping to get a job offer from them soon, and will gladly let you guys know soon as that happens.

Once again thank you for giving me, and other veterans the opportunity to connect with employers around the country.”

“Work For Warriors was an awesome resource that helped me get my new job. I had a good experience working with their recruiter Jiro who always followed up with me throughout the process.”

“I attended a Work for Warriors job fair at Camp Pendleton, CA several years ago after having finished the US Army’s 25R school. To be honest, I wasn’t crazy about the sales and (mostly) part-time jobs that were offered. However, it was speaking with the Veterans who ran the job fair that made all the difference. They were the ones who sent my resumé to 20th Century Fox, allowing me to get my foot in the door, and I’ve been working as a Broadcast/IT Engineer ever since.”

Joshua Hager

“I encourage any, and all California veterans who are looking for work to get in touch with Work for Warriors. They work with you on a personal level to help you find not only jobs, but possible career opportunities. Mr. Bruce Riley has been working with me and has kept in touch with me consistently throughout my search for work. Work for Warriors really takes a lot of the stress out in not only finding a job, but finding a Veteran-friendly job. My experience with them has been truly great, and they go above and beyond to complete their mission in finding jobs for veterans.”
