Comcast and NBCU Wednesday announced that it had met its three-year goal of hiring those 1,000 vets and/or spouses two years early, and would hire another 1,000 in the next two years.
The Chamber's goal is 500,000 vets by the end of 2014. It currently has pledges for more than 210,000 jobs.
Among the company's efforts, Comcast/NBCU has veterans-targeted employee resource groups, and NBC News produced the Making a Difference on the Homefront news series to "shine a light on veterans, military families and the issues affecting them across the country," and NBC Publishing has produced a free eBook, Heroes Get Hired: How to Use Your Military Experience to Master the Interview.
NBC News and the Chamber are also launching later this year a jobs and education resource "portal."
