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
“Mr. Jason Cameron presented at a Resiliency Day event for the COVID Task Force comprised of 129th, 163d and 195th members. Unemployment after our current mission is the main issue distressing our Airmen. Jason provided our Airmen with hope and optimism that opportunities await them. He outlined how Work for Warriors assists veterans on the job search. We sincerely appreciated his visit and the knowledge that he shared. Thank you for all you do.”
“I sent my resume to the OMB for Work for Warriors and honestly thought nothing would come of it. That was a Monday. I received a reply from James on Tuesday (the next day) asking me if I can be referred to a position he knows about. In ten days, I received and accepted a job offer. I finished my second week last Friday and I am starting in the third week at my current position. I am sure not every story has the same quick turnaround. However I would not have gotten my foot on the door without the help of James and Work for Warriors. I would absolutely recommend Work for Warriors to any veteran, especially now. Even for essential industries and services such as IT, the market is overloaded with the current economic situation. Any help to get veterans employed would be great and would be welcomed.”
“I just want to formally thank you and your team for your assistance in landing this job I now have. It is extremely worthwhile, rewarding, has great potential to advance ( which I am currently being considered for after only a few weeks) and of course highly lucrative.
I’d specifically like to recognize Anthony Altemoos, who was paramount in the process and constantly active in responding and inquiring each step of the way.”
“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.”
