  Microsoft last week announced that Microsoft Software & Systems Academy (MSSA), which provides IT career training to eligible active-duty U.S. service members, is expanding from three locations to nine and will be servicing 12 military installations. Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University will serve as the new designated academic partner for MSSA expansion delivery.

"The skill sets of our servicemen and servicewomen, combined with the IT training they receive in a program like MSSA, position them to strongly compete for high-paying, long-term careers in technology," said Chris Cortez, vice president of Military Affairs at Microsoft. For further insights into hiring military veterans, including a chart with links to programs run by every US state, read " The Time Is Now," published for Veterans Day 2014.
