Women Veterans often find it more difficult to transition to civilian careers after serving and defending the Nation. To combat the higher unemployment rate female veterans face, Veteran Recruiting and top veteran-friendly companies will team up to help at least 1,000 women veterans find employment by the end of 2025.
