Military Skills Translator for Facebook Opportunities

We are excited to announce the launch of our US Military Skills translator! At Facebook, we believe that the values and experiences of Veterans play a key role in helping us achieve our mission of bringing the world closer together. The translator helps Veterans transitioning from military service to navigate the opportunities at Facebook.

Veterans can now use their military job title in the Military Skills Translator to find Facebook roles relevant to their experience. We have also added a special “Interest” filter to help explore roles that not only align with your military job title but also with your career interests. Your results will find both roles that meet all that criteria and those that meet your military skill set. #missiondriven

All year long, the values and experiences of veterans play a key role in helping Facebook achieve our mission of bringing the world closer together. And each year, Veteran's Day gives our community the opportunity to recognize and honor all veterans. This year, our Facebook Vets and Allies resource group is holding special events focused on leadership and giving back to the community. Facebook locations across the country are helping out by providing teddy bears to children of deployed service members through Operation Gratitude. “At Facebook, we have a deep sense of civic responsibility that comes with building and operating a platform with over two billion users,” said John D., VP of Global Operations. “I’m proud of the former and current service members at Facebook who are carrying that obligation with the same commitment and spirit as when in uniform.”

Facebook Veterans Partners with the Honor Flight Bay Area Foundation

Many of you followed our recent journey with the Honor Flight Bay Area Foundation to sponsor 26 WWII, Korean and Vietnam War veterans on their trip to Washington, D.C.

Now, we’d love to share those moments with you in a special video production. Please watch and share with pride!

Proud supporter of our Guard and Reservists here at FB!

Please join us in thanking Facebook for signing a Statement of Support for Guard and Reserve members!

“Facebook pledges to stand proudly with its Guard and Reserve employees, who continue to answer their nation’s call to defend our way of life," said U.S. Navy Capt. Juliet Perkins, ESGR executive director.

By signing the SoS, Facebook pledges to fully comply with USERRA and to support their Guard and Reserve employees every step of the way--from managerial support to finding more opportunities to hire Guardsmen, Reservists and Veterans.

Thanks, Facebook!

This Memorial Day we remember the men and women who died serving our country. One California nonprofit does that all year round in an unexpected way: surfing.
Operation Surf helps veterans overcome limitations from physical and psychological disabilities through the healing power of the ocean, while also honoring fellow service members they lost.

Military Romance Scams PSA

At Facebook, we take the security of veterans very seriously. We know that scammers attempt to piggyback off of well-respected institutions, like the military, to gain credibility. To help prevent this, we use a combination of automated and manual systems to help detect scams before you see them and keep your information secure. But just like any public space, it's important to stay safe and protect yourself against possible scams.

The welcome home ceremony for the Honor Flight Network Veterans at San Francisco International Airport (SFO) was absolutely unbelievable. It brought a tear to almost everyone's eye and truly showed the Veterans that their sacrifice was appreciated and will never be forgotten. A special #thanks to The USO at San Francisco International Airport for bringing together so many supporters to cheer them on.

We were so proud to have been a part of this incredible experience. Thanks to all who served!

Our second day of tours with the 26 WWII, Korean and Vietnam War Veterans from Honor Flight Network was such an inspiring and fun adventure! From meeting a platoon of members of the United States Marine Corps out for an early morning run, to a moving visit at the Vietnam War Memorial Park and Korean War Memorial, to a show of incredible talent by the US Navy Ceremonial Guard, it was truly a perfect day for these heroes.

04/10/2018

What an incredible first day of tours for our 26 WWII, Korean and Vietnam War Veterans! They experienced the WWII Memorial, the National Museum of American History the U S Navy Museum and the Arlington National Cemetery. Stay tuned for more updates from their journey today!

RESURFACE

As part of #FBVetsWeek2017, the Facebook Veterans and Allies team had the honor of hosting a discussion with the leadership team from Operation Surf and a screening of the documentary Resurface as an organization that highlights Resilience in Action every day.

Operation Surf, part of Amazing Surf Adventures, helps injured warriors on their road to recovery by using the power of the ocean and adaptive surfing techniques taught by world-class instructors. The week long, all-inclusive event provides an environment where participants work to overcome perceived limitations connected to their physical and psychological disabilities—and build resilience. Ocean therapy is medically recognized in helping participants experiencing a decrease in PTSD Symptoms by 36%, a decrease in depression by 47%, and an increase in self-efficacy by 68%, we know surfing heals!
