Who We Are

Veterans On Wall Street (VOWS) is an initiative dedicated to honoring former and currently military personnel by facilitating career and business opportunities in the financial services industry. With the help of its strategic charity partner, the Bob Woodruff Foundation, and through a combination of educational initiatives, mentoring, outreach to the military, employee affinity groups, and an annual conference, VOWS promotes career development, support, and retention of veterans throughout the global financial services industry.
VOWS pledges:

  • to continually recognize and support our country’s service members and their families in peace, in crises and in war.
  • to fully recognize, honor and enforce the Uniformed Services Employment and Re-Employment Rights Act (USERRA).
  • to ensure their managers and supervisors will have the tools they need to effectively manage those employees who serve in the Guard and Reserve.

About Us

Connecting Veterans to Careers

As the go-to job platform for over 5.7 million users, WayUp is known for helping early-career candidates launch their careers. Veterans can create a free candidate profile on WayUp that highlights their unique skill set, get matched to open roles with top employers across the country and receive assistance throughout the entire recruitment process – including interview prep materials, veteran-specific webinar content, soft-skills feedback, and more. Employers on the WayUp platform will also have the ability to quickly and efficiently search for veteran candidates using a veteran sourcing tool, which is offered to all VOWS companies free of charge.

Join Us for Stand Up for Heroes

The annual Stand Up for Heroes launched in 2007 as the brainchild of Bob and Lee Woodruff and New York Comedy Festival founders Caroline Hirsch and Andrew Fox, and has historically been New York’s most anticipated night of hope, healing, and laughter honoring our veterans and military families. VOWS is a presenting partner of the event.
