Non-profit run by "Call of Duty" creators triples its vet job placements

"Last year there were nearly three-quarters of a million unemployed veterans in the United States, according to the Bureau of Labor.

And it's likely going to get worse as the military continues to downsize.

That's where the Call of Duty Endowment comes in. The non-profit, launched by Activision in 2009, works to find returning veterans not just jobs, but well-paying, long-lasting jobs. Since bringing on a new full time executive director, the endowment has excelled at this goal.

From the 2009 launch until 2013, the endowment found just under 2,000 returning vets jobs. In 2013 alone, CODE under the leadership of Dan Goldenberg has nearly tripled that number, helping more than 19,000 veterans and placing more than 5,600 of them in new careers. The average salary for those jobs is $46,000, $1,000 higher than the national average, not starting, salary, Goldenberg told Polygon.

Those placed through endowment-backed programs had a six month retention rate more than 85 percent of the time, according to the group."
