How to help

Modern Healthcare - - BEST PRACTICES -

1. Ask ven­dors for help: Rush’s Jaime Par­ent ap­proached IT ven­dors ask­ing for com­pli­men­tary ac­cess to on­line train­ing.

2. En­list search firms: Par­ent rec­om­mends reach­ing out to lo­cal tech­nol­ogy place­ment firms to help vet­er­ans find jobs. “They’re happy to place them be­cause they get the finder’s fee,” he said.

3. Be flex­i­ble: Make changes to train­ing pro­grams, in­clud­ing their length and size, based on what works and what doesn’t.

4. Get the word out: Tell lo­cal or­ga­ni­za­tions that serve vet­er­ans about your pro­gram and ask for help with re­cruit­ment.

The sec­ond class of vet­er­ans in Rush’s EN-Abled Vet Pro­gram be­gan in July.
