Cengage Learning joined the nation’s leading businesses last week at a White House ceremony to commemorate the 5th Anniversary of Joining Forces, a nationwide initiative calling on Americans to rally around service members, veterans and their families and support them through wellness, education and employment opportunities.

First Lady Michelle Obama and Dr. Jill Biden led the event recognizing more than 50 tech companies that have pledged to train or hire veterans and military spouses over the next five years.

Cengage Learning is providing 100 scholarships to help veterans and military spouses access the company’s wide range of online certificate training programs at higher education institutions. These programs provide skills leading to tech sector employment. In addition, Cengage Learning will partner with local veteran agencies to post jobs, share information on the company’s application process and participate in events (e.g., webinars, local workshops) that help veterans and military spouses with resume-building and interviewing skills.

“Cengage Learning is honored to join Mrs. Obama and Dr. Biden to help veterans and military spouses find tech sector career opportunities. Our pledge, along with those of the other tech companies, will provide much-needed support for these individuals who still face too many barriers in finding employment in our growing sector,” said Michael Hansen, Chief Executive Officer, Cengage Learning.

Cengage Learning provides services and solutions to support military members for a smooth transition into civilian jobs, either to start a new career path or strengthen their existing skills.
