    Segment Transcript


    I’m Laura Reynolds with CarPro.com.  Ford Product Line Manager and Veteran Scott Rumfield says the Michigan Veterans Affairs Agency has recognized Ford as a Gold-Level Veteran Friendly Employer. Rumfield talks about the Ford programs that help Veterans. Rumfield: "If they want to go back to school, we help them choose different programs and school to go through to make them more of a desirable candidate from Ford when they come out.  We also work with them to help them update their resumes and just kind of go through that whole transition. We're hooked into the community and a whole bunch of different charities and groups to help just all service members in general go through that transition.   Once you get into Ford there's a bunch of different programs that we work with in providing community service events,  professional development, career mentoring events, and then just opportunities to get together with your fellow veterans and share your experiences and feel like you have a family and a home here at Ford." With Today’s Auto News, I’m Laura Reynolds.
