For Veterans to Prosper in STEM Workforce, Employers Need to Help With Post-Military Transition
It’s crazy that this is even a thing –
Mike Grice, a member of the board of directors for Medtech and Biotech Veterans Program, has heard his fair share of people say, “We don’t hire veterans because they’re a liability.” People think they’ll go “postal” because of PTSD, says Grice, who served for 27 years in the United States Marine Corps.
It’s another outcome of the Civ/Mil Divide. People fear what they don’t understand, and take their cues from sensationalized movies and new reports.
