How construction and military veterans can help each other
from Construction Dive
Rob O'Dwyer doesn't think of his position as Director of Admissions and Student Success at the North Bennett Street School in Boston as a job but something more akin to a vocation. The 135-year-old school, which focuses on adult career education, boasts a 20 percent enrollment of veterans, giving O'Dwyer "skin in the game" as he said his father is a disabled Vietnam veteran. According to a U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs May 2016 report, most veterans secured jobs in management, sales or some other administrative position, but only a small percentage chose the construction trades.
