Rutherford partnership aims to get more veterans into workforce

The Rutherford County Chamber of Commerce has teamed up with the Tennessee Technology Center in Murfreesboro to launch the Veterans Welcome Home Network, an initiative that seeks to find civilian jobs for area military personnel who have recently left the service.

The VWHN will be coordinated by a Tennessee Technology Center of Murfreesboro employee who is also a veteran. The coordinator will work with the business and industry community to determine the skill sets required for current employment opportunities, and will arrange on-site visits to the various military installations within a 300-mile radius of Murfreesboro.
