Austin Company Helps Women Veterans Readjust
Women soldiers face specific challenges transitioning back into civilian life. Vicky Garza with the Austin Business Journal reports that one Austin company is trying to help.
She spoke with KUT’s Andrew Uhler about how F7 Group bridges the understanding gap between veterans and companies that could hire them.
They found out through their talks with companies that a lot of hiring managers just didn’t understand the military mindset and the skills that they learned, and they also have this misconception that veterans might have post-traumatic stress disorder, or they might be unstable employees, but that’s simply not the case. The biggest issue is that a lot of veterans don’t have a good support system.
