I have highlighted three job creation trends specific to public safety: internships, high school programs and veteran programs. The following articles from Emergency Management and Fire Chief Magazines respectively outline two excellent programs that are not necessarily new but are more timely and essential than ever. The third article is the announcement of the Veterans Job Corps initiative to help returning veterans. Please let me know what you think and if you have any jobs programs from your community you would like to share.
