Frederick-based electronics recycler e-End recently donated a state-of-the-art computer to Mr. Joe Gottshall, a local unemployed veteran, to aid in his search for job opportunities. “With 80% of employers using automated applicant tracking systems, and a decrease in the unemployment rate for all veterans, it’s critical to utilize internet to increase your chances of gaining employment.” Said Kimble Lee, Local Veterans' Employment Representative for the Maryland Department of Labor, Licensing and Regulation. “e-End is continuing to honor our veterans by providing free excellent working computer systems to help facilitate the daunting task of job hunting.”
The cost of a computer system for an unemployed veteran can sometimes be an impossibility to afford. These veterans are then forced to spend money for gas or public transportation to be able to utilize computers at the public library or at agencies such as Frederick County Workforce Services.
Steve Chafitz, President of e-End, said, “My team and I are proud to help one of our nation’s veterans by providing a computer that will allow them to carry out their employment search in the comfort and privacy of their own home.”
