Tempe, AZ – November 1, 2011 – In-step with President Barack Obama signing into law a measure that provides tax credits to companies that hire unemployed veterans, Higher Ed Growth, a higher education marketing firm, today announced the launch of TheGIBill.com. The web portal provides information and resources for veterans seeking to evaluate colleges and universities that cater specifically to veterans and the GI Bill.
Due to the war efforts in both Afghanistan and Iraq winding down, veterans will be increasingly seeking employment opportunities in a struggling economy with unemployment hovering around 9 percent nationally. Veterans who utilize their GI Bill benefits to receive training in key high demand career fields, combined with the President’s unemployed veteran tax credit, have a desirable advantage when competing with other job applicants for open positions. According to President Obama, nearly one million veterans will be entering the civilian workforce over the next five years.
“TheGIBill.com works with colleges and universities that specialize in veterans GI Bill benefits,” says Frank Healy, President and CEO of Higher Ed Growth. “Working with the right school, towards the right in-demand degree is paramount to a vets future career.” Mr. Healy’s prior experience includes managing Internet marketing and lead generation for nearly two hundred of Apollo Group’s University of Phoenix campuses.
“Many of the schools we work with have special cost saving programs for veterans,” says Joe Laskowski, Managing Partner and CMO of Higher Ed Growth. “Some of these programs include waived application fees, reduced or eliminated book fees, and reduced tuition.”
TheGIBill.com serves both online and campus based accredited universities across the United States. Veterans can weigh the advantages of online courses or a convenient campus location.
Higher Ed Growth assists both non-profit and for-profit colleges and universities. Current engagements include both regional and national universities seeking aggressive approaches to enrollment.
