Norvinnia McLaurine left the U.S. Army after 21 years of service in April. Since then, he’s struggled to find work.
McLaurine, who was a warrant officer, said he found it difficult to translate his military skills to the civilian workforce. He’s also raising his 19-year-old son who has autism, so he needs a flexible work schedule.
“I want to care for him and be an asset to the community,” he said.
McLaurine is one of four students participating in Digital Works, a new job training program geared toward veterans and military spouses. The four- to six-week program equips students with skills to work in the telework industry and connects graduates to customer support and IT jobs for global corporations.
