CANA is dedicated to supporting our country’s veterans. In keeping with the company’s outreach and advocacy efforts, CANA recently joined a group of businesses to participate in the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Hiring Our Heroes Corporate Fellowship Program (HoH CFP). The 12-week program provides transitioning service members with professional training and hands-on experience with world-class civilian organizations during the final weeks of their military service. Hosting companies receive the benefit of access to some of our nation’s best and brightest transitioning service members as well as receive a comprehensive insight into the veteran job market.
