Because of its commitment to employing veterans and providing resources for employees and their families, for the third consecutive year Navient has been recognized as a Military Friendly Employer by Victory Media, publisher of G.I. Jobs and Military Spouse magazines.
“We provide military veterans meaningful career opportunities because it makes our company better,” Mike Maier, senior vice president and U.S. Navy veteran, said in a news release. “With their experience and leadership ability, veterans offer a strong work ethic and a commitment to service that our employees and customers value.”
Navient provides veterans with employment opportunities, offers mentoring and development, and raises funds and awareness for veterans.
- To help job-seeking veterans, Navient attends several military hiring events each year. A specialized veterans career site makes it easy for veterans to find job openings that match their background, education and experience. Navient is also member of the Veteran Jobs Mission, a coalition of companies committed to hiring U.S. military veterans and military spouses.
- The employee-led Veterans Resource Group provides recognition, mentoring and resources to employees and families connected to the military. Veterans can take advantage of military leave benefits, job-based training, tuition reimbursement and various development programs.
- Through partners and employees, Navient supports community groups that provide care and resources to service members and veterans. For example, this year Navient helped establish a veterans’ study lounge at Delaware Technical and Community College and supported animal-assisted therapy for wounded veterans through Warrior Canine Connection.
