Webinar Powerpoint

Kathy AndersonOver the course of the next five years, the U.S. Armed Services will downsize by at least 350,000 troops – many of whom have been living and serving overseas for several years.  With this tremendous influx of military professionals entering the job market, Governor Branstad and General Orr saw an opportunity to honor our country’s veterans while simultaneously bridging Iowa’s skills gaps.  This opportunity has become known as the Home Base Iowa program.

Home Base Iowa is a non-profit, private-public partnership that aims to recruit veterans and active duty service members for private-sector job opportunities in Iowa. The Home Base Iowa website will be used to recruit our nation’s best and brightest to Iowa, providing Iowa employers with qualified workers who already possess highly sought after skills – leadership, critical thinking, problem solving, and time management, just to name a few.
