Kevin Preston, Disney’s director of veteran initiatives and retired Army Colonel explains why the Heroes Work Here program is important:
“We are a veteran-friendly company and the program is about telling veterans that we are interested in them – if that means they find a job at Disney, great; if it means sharing knowledge that will help them find employment elsewhere, that’s great too.

Disney provides online workshops and coaching via their Heroes Work Here website.
