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.

“My experience with Work for Warriors has been fantastic. The support and assistance that your group has given me in finding gainful employment has been very positive. I especially appreciate the fact that your people not only email out job opportunities but also connect directly with hiring managers to put in a good word for veterans who have applied for specific jobs. I think that proactiveness is the key to your organization’s effectiveness. Thank you to you and your organization. I can’t recommend you guys highly enough, and I will let other veterans know of your services. Thank you again.”
“Without Work for Warriors, I would not have a job right now. Amanda called me one evening and told me that she believed I was a good fit for a Buyer position, but my resume needed work. After about 2 days of working on my resume, we submitted the resume and was told that the Buyer 1 position was filled, but that I could apply for Buyer 3. After applying for Buyer 3, I was rejected for not specifying I had experience in electronics. Amanda immediately contacted the HR department and explained that I did have extensive electronic experience and I was given a phone interview. I called Amanda at 0900 the next day and she helped me practice for the interview. After the phone interview I was invited to do an in person interview, but was not offered the position. About a week later, Amanda called me at 0800 and told me that the company wanted me back in for another interview for Buyer 2. I went in for the interview on Friday and was offered the job on Tuesday morning. “
“I want to say thank you for the work you do with veterans. I learned about your organization late last year and followed via Linkedin. I saw the alliance you have with Tesla and was really excited about the opportunity. You hosted a Zoom call that started the whole process; the Tesla Recruiter on the call, Arne was on as well, and a current Tech at Tesla was also invited to speak. This combination was a great introduction to Tesla and Work for Warriors.
I immediately reached out and worked with Arne regarding my resume and stayed in communication throughout the process. I thought Arne did a good job of letting me know where things were in the process and status. I honestly cannot think of a way to improve the process substantially. It was very good and I think any veteran would and should be grateful to work with you.
Thank you again for all you do and the help you provided me. I am an employee at my dream company, Tesla, and I owe a huge debt of gratitude to Work for Warriors for helping open that door for me!”
