These positions are part of the company's broader pledge to hire 25,000 U.S. workers through 2020, and many are "new collar jobs" that do not always require a four-year college degree.
Furthering its commitment to help veterans build new collar job skills, IBM also has expanded its nationwide program to train U.S. vets in software that is widely used in the defense and law enforcement industries.
Since January 2016, IBM has been hosting one U.S. training session per month that certifies participating veterans in the use of i2 Analysts' Notebook.
Recent training sessions have taken place in Pittsburgh, Tampa, and Las Vegas, with upcoming sessions in Philadelphia, Fort Drum, and Houston.
More than 500 veterans have been trained to-date, and hundreds more will participate in the program this year. ■
