Employment Expert On Young Combat Veterans

Veterans employment expert Ted Daywalt says the unemployment rate for young combat veterans could go as high as 50% in the next two years.  Daywalt, president and chief executive officer of VetJobs.com, says the unemployment rate for veterans age 18 to 24 is 31%, far above the 7.7% for veterans of all ages.

VetJobs was established in 1999 following extensive research on job and resume sites catering to the military market. The research indicated there was a gap in sites which assisted employers in identifying the transitioning military and veteran candidate.
