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. Since then, we've had the pleasure and honor of serving California's veteran community through employment assistance and training. With the initial intent to help California National Guard service members, we've grown, expanded and created over 900 business partnerships throughout California.
We succeed when you succeed
“I wasn’t sure if I would get a reply because I didn’t know who to contact. I am very thankful for Stephanie and your program, because of her I got a job in Chico and now I can continue to provide for my family. I will continue to spread the word about the Work for Warrior program. Thank you again!”
“Your organization has gone above and beyond what I could request of anyone trying to get hired. The employees you work with at your company are professionals. I hope to continue receiving updates on jobs and careers that may come forward. Thank you for your time and consideration.”
“Jason Bailey was very influential in helping me secure this position by giving solid resume and job search advice. He met me when I was truly lost, had no idea what I was going to do, or where to even start. So, I appreciate all that you and your team does to help veterans.”
“Work for Warriors was instrumental in finding a high profile, well paying and enjoyable career! First, they assisted me in discovering what career fields that I would best fit into. Next, I applied with them to several companies. Even though I received multiple job offers, WFW was able to help me figure out which one was the best fit for me. On top of that they notified employers in a friendly way why I could not accept a particular offer. Don’t think of this company as a bunch of headhunters trying to make a buck. They are your advisors that are there to help veterans transition to the civilian world.”
