Dear Customer, Fans and Readers,
Veterans who have selflessly served our Country in the line of Duty protecting our Freedom and our Rights. Veterans who have sacrificed for their Country and the People in it. Veterans who have risked their lives to serve and protect.
Yet, they return from overseas, and are having a hard time finding work here in their very own country they have fought so hard for. They are leaving the military service and moving down the ladder to poverty. The number of low-income veterans receiving government assistance for their heating and cooling bills hit a new high last year, according to a survey by a federal energy-assistance program. Over the last four years, the survey also found, the number of low-income households with at least one military veteran receiving federal energy assistance rose by about 1.1 million households, to 1.78 million.
According to the Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America, there are about 178,000 recent veterans currently looking for work.
We at Toyota of Manhattan find this news disturbing and want to help. We want to help our Veterans, our heroes. We will be hiring and training veterans in available opening at our dealership.. We have many positions available from Sales, Internet Business Development Center (BDC), Assistant Service Managers, Porters and Service Technicians. We will train as needed for the positions mentioned. For a Service Technician, they should have a mechanical background. We will strengthen that knowledge with Toyota training and ASE training.
Veterans can send their resume or request an application via e-mail by contacting Jason Schroeck at email@example.com. They may also visit the dealership to hand in their resume at the front desk and fill out an application.
Here is a great article Phyllis Furman from the New York Daily News wrote about our efforts in hiring Veterans. We appreciate the New York Daily News helping us reach out to our veteran community and giving more veterans an opportunity to find work. Please help us spread the word with the veterans you know and help them find employment.
