News Release

Fifth Third Bank Offers Free Job Search Training for Veterans;
Announces 2014 Veterans Initiatives
(Cincinnati) – Fifth Third Bank is proud to support veterans, active duty U.S. military, reservists and their family members as part of its deep commitment to support the communities it serves. A calendar of events is now available by market online at www.53.com/veterans.

This year’s programming is highlighted by the free offering of the Job Seeker’s Toolkit, a comprehensive online job search training program from national reemployment solutions company NextJob, for all U.S. military and veterans until December 31, 2014.

The Job Seeker’s Toolkit is NextJob’s exclusive and proprietary online job search software. It is a web-based, multi-media program that facilitates interactive learning through nine job search modules. Fifth Third and NextJob have worked together since 2012 to bring job search assistance to its Bank customers and to the general public via its Financial Empowerment Mobiles and special promotions.

Fifth Third Bank’s support of veterans, including the delivery of military- and veteran-focused financial products and services, is year-round and comprehensive and culminates around Veterans Day. The support centers around:

1) Reemployment—helping veterans transition back into the workforce;
2) Community-based housing support—rebuilding veterans’ homes and providing resources for the establishment of those homes.
3) Education—assisting with educational needs, including job training, scholarship assistance and financial empowerment.

Thanks to the generous volunteerism of our employees, Fifth Third accomplishes this through:

• Free job search training. Specialized job transition assistance for military and veterans through the Job Seeker’s Toolkit. Access to these modules is available at no charge from Oct. 15 – Dec. 31, 2014. Once started, access continues for 39 weeks.

• Fundraising for military and veterans organizations, including Folds of Honor, which provides scholarships to spouses and children of those killed or disabled in service to America, Disabled American Veterans and others.

• Commemorative events that honor past and present servicemen and women. These events may include gathering and assembling care packages and leading ‘thank you’ letter drives for military serving overseas.

• Widespread volunteerism for a variety of projects, including the renovation, refurbishment and rejuvenation of housing for low-income veterans in collaboration with local chapters of Rebuilding Together.

Our veterans’ initiatives are part of Fifth Third’s long-standing commitment to supporting the communities we serve. More about our community commitment can be found in the Bank’s Corporate Social Responsibility Report.
