The jobs boom continues.
Computer giant IBM has officially announced that they are going to hire on 2,000 United States Military veterans after a lengthy meeting with President Donald Trump.
IBM CEO Ginni Rometty announced the plans Friday.
The company intends to open 20 new P-TECH schools in the U.S. and will retrain and certify the veterans over a four-year period, Axios reported.
Many of the veterans will be trained in the use of IBM’s software programs used by law enforcement, cybersecurity, and national security agencies.
IBM joins a growing list of companies announcing major expansion in the age of Trump. The list includes 45,000 jobs announced by Exxon Mobil, 10,000 new jobs at Kroger, 10,000 jobs at Walmart, another 10,000 jobs to be offered by U.S. Steel, and 50,000 by SoftBank Telecommunications, among many others.
