VoiceNation Assists in Ensuring Employment for America’s Homeless Veterans
Atlanta, GA – March 1, 2009 – Over the years, VoiceNation’s Care2Call program has made a proactive effort in providing service to support many charities and non-profit organizations in need of complimentary communication solutions. C.J. Brown, CEO of PeoplePower and author of the “28 Days to Employment” system, needs VoiceNation’s voicemail service for various employment programs his company pioneers. The Veteran’s Employment Alliance is one of these many programs and it assists homeless veterans with finding suitable careers.
According to the National Coalition for Homeless Veterans, (NCHV), 23% of America’s homeless people consist of veterans; a sad fate for those who risked their lives for their country. “The “28 Days to Employment” system was used for the Veterans Employment Alliance and was tested throughout 2008. The program experienced a 95% placement rate with 100% retention”, states C.J. Brown. All are hopeful that this year’s efforts will result in 100% job placement and retention now that VoiceNation is assisting.
The “28 Days to Employment” system assists homeless and economically disadvantaged individuals discover their full potential. It also teaches them how to convey that potential to prospective employers. Program participants learn to create eye catching resumes that impact the employer positively, as well as develop vital interviewing techniques that are proven to impress. Now with VoiceNation’s help, the programs can also provide virtual voicemail service for each job seeker and help to bridge the communication gap between the employer and employee.
“28 Days to Employment” program participants will receive free voicemail numbers from VoiceNation that can be provided to potential employers as a personal call back number.
