Bobby Kotick founded the Call of Duty Endowment in 2009 after seeing the need for an organization that supports veterans after their military service is complete. After years of good faith efforts, the unemployment rate for post-9/11 veterans remains too high. To solve the problem, vets have to be well-prepared for the job market and employers must be receptive to hiring them. But vets are faced with employers who don’t understand their qualifications—and hiring managers who harbor false stereotypes. Worsening matters, vets struggle to explain how their skills, training, and experience apply to civilian jobs. The result is an unemployment rate for young post-9/11 veterans that exceeds that of their non-veteran peers.
