U.S. Gas & Electric Partners with Veteran Tech Brigade to Employ Military Veterans

U.S. Gas & Electric Partners with Veteran Tech Brigade to bridge the employment gap among veterans. The new Veteran-owned technology staffing firm aims to reduce the unemployment rate among military veterans and their spouses to increase earning power.

Miami, FL, April 14, 2013 --(PR.com)-- Frustrated with the high unemployment rate among veterans and inadequate career transitioning services offered them, Veteran Tech Brigade is working with numerous commercial companies and government contracting firms to provide meaningful jobs and free pre-employment counseling to our military veterans and their spouses.

Attending military job fairs is the easy part. Any staffing agency can do that. Veteran Tech Brigade goes the extra mile to reach deep into the ranks and pull out the best and brightest military service members to place with client companies. Veteran Tech Brigade has established relationships with a large number of veteran education and training organizations to ensure they capture the cream of the crop as they exit the armed forces and hang up their boots. The company’s specialty is IT personnel ranging from tier 1 help desk to network architects with many of their candidates having government security clearances.

“We add tremendous value to employers interested in hiring veterans in a number of ways,” says Veteran Tech Brigade CEO, LTC Kelly Crigger, a retired US Army officer. “We remove the costly expenses of conducting background checks, attending job fairs, reading countless resumes and military evaluation reports while providing our clientele with grateful employees who help grow their business and remain onboard through thick and thin. Not only are military veterans, excellent disciplined employees, there are also a number of significant tax benefits companies can gain by hiring one.”

One company that has taken advantage of Veteran Tech Brigade’s opportunity to gain diligent military veterans for their employee base is U.S. Gas & Electric, a leading energy supplier in numerous states. Not only has USG&E established a plan to hire military veterans and their spouses, but they’ve also developed specific energy programs for military veterans to reduce their natural gas and electricity expenses simply by enrolling through the company’s online site at www.USGandE.com/FriendsandFamily and entering promotional code: VETERAN.

“As our company and employment opportunities continue to grow significantly, we plan to hire a number of military veterans,” stated Doug Marcille, Director, CEO and President of USG&E. “Our current team members who hold a military background have shown tremendous dedication and we could not be more pleased by their quality of work. We are thrilled that Veteran Tech Brigade has been created as we will now have a much easier and more cost-effective way to employ even more military veterans and their spouses.”
