What is Jobless Warrior?
We are private citizens who wish to help.
mission is simple: End unemployment and
underemployment for our heroic warriors by
enhancing their job search effectiveness via
one-on-one, professional support and other
There are many great governmental and nonprofit
organizations already providing job assistance
to veterans, and we applaud them for their
efforts. We are confident that there is an
additional, untapped reservoir of goodwill
throughout the country that will help us to
augment existing programs for our heroic Jobless
Our philosophy is:
Give a Veteran a job, and he or she will work
Teach a Veteran how to get a job, and he or she
will work for a lifetime.
Why is Jobless Warrior needed?
While we complain about an 8-9% overall
it is much worse for our veterans.
According to the
Bureau of Labor Statistics,
young male veterans, ages 18 to 24, who served
during the Gulf War II era, including those who
have served at any time since September 2001,
had an unemployment rate of 21.9 percent in 2010
(significantly higher than the national average-
at nearly double the rate).
The veterans unemployment rate is on a steady
incline and has even risen noticeably since
2010. In fact, according to the Bureau of Labor
Statistics, the rate of unemployment for
all military veterans increased from 11.5% in June
2010 to 13.3% in June 2011.
Veterans unemployment rates are not expected to
decline any time soon either. Unemployment among
veterans could potentially rise even further in
upcoming months as more troops return from
overseas, especially if our overall economy
continues to sputter.
It is disgraceful and unacceptable that these
heroes, who risked all to protect our way of
life, face such dismal job prospects when they
What type of free career search services does
Jobless Warrior offer?
We have a growing team of professional career
search volunteers who will provide free,
one-on-one services to our unemployed military
men and women. These professionals include
Career Coaches, Resume Writers, Job Networking
Groups, Recruiters, Employers and more.

free service to one of our Jobless warriors,

working together. The volunteer is required to
then offer a substantial discount for any
subsequent services that are provided. The
warrior is under no obligation to continue with
the volunteer after the free service has been
In fact, it is our hope that many volunteers
will continue to work with a veteran, at no
charge, beyond the initial free period.
Some volunteers have already indicated that they
plan to "adopt" the veterans that they work with
and see them through the entire process until a
suitable job has been accepted. We
strongly encourage this approach.
Finally, if you do not wish to pay any fees,
discounted or otherwise, and the volunteer is
unable to continue providing free services (they
have to pay their bills, too), you can consider
coming back to Jobless Warrior and opting to
work with a different volunteer for as long as
he or she will work with you at no charge.
Bottomline: We want you to get the job
that you deserve as a true hero of our nation.
Use as many volunteers as you need to get that
