An excellent solution to the growing employment gap
In 2012, Vet2Tech Founder George Nicholson, set out to help the skilled trade industry find a solution to a growing technician shortage. An aging workforce and diminishing interest in skilled trades led to a nationwide critical deficiency.
As an F-15 Crew Chief in the United States Air Force, George understood first-hand the solid technical skills and experience gained in the military. Knowing that approximately 40% of all active-duty service members are trained in mechanical, technical or engineering specialties makes ex-military personnel an excellent solution to the growing employment gap.
With the unemployment rate for our youngest Military Veterans well over 30% at that time, the enormous potential for well-trained Veterans entering the workforce was an attainable solution to the technician shortage.
With more than 200,000 active-duty service members transitioning into the civilian workforce every year and 40% being highly trained and experienced in mechanical, technical and engineering specialties, it made sense to connect these younger Veterans to technician positions.
