About Us

 

HISTORY

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.

“It is hard to believe that it was just a few mere months that we spoke of my serve dis-satisfaction with the private sector. How my former employer did not truly value my military experiences, education and leadership abilities. We both knew it was time for a change, but I never imagined that conversation would lead to this! I’m proud to say that I am finally a State employee working for my dream department. The Governor’s Office of Emergency Services (CalOES), as an Associate Governmental Program Analyst. I have a Manager who truly values my input and past professional experiences and for the first time, I feel I’m working with someone, and not for someone’s agenda. The culture is conducive to growth with potential opportunities for advancement. This would have not been possible if it weren’t for your networking, interview prep, and resume articulation to this specific job duties. Thank you SFC Riley and your Work for Warriors Team for helping me land this job. I am eternally grateful!”

“I wanted to reach out and say thank you. In three months at Inter-Con I’ve turned my $18/hour opportunity that you bestowed upon me, into a near six figure salaried position in the Bay, with my own office, full benefits, and a company car. I am truly grateful for all the hard work you and your organization does to support the veteran community. My life is better because of you. Thank you.”

Jack Kessler

“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.”

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