When you leave the military, the biggest question is "what's next?" It's a scary job market right now, but the skills you've received in the military make you highly marketable. The Legion sponsors dozens of veterans hiring fairs each year, and our employment experts also provide tips to writing resumes, networking and making a strong impression in the interview process.
In an effort to hire more veterans, the federal government has launched FedsHireVets.gov - a Web site that hopes to serve as the main source for veterans employment information and provide resources to officials interested in hiring veterans. The site, which went online in February, is part of President Obama's Veterans Employment Initiative - an executive order that hopes to mold the federal government into a model employer of America's veterans.
FedsHireVets.gov works in conjunction with the departments of Defense, Labor, Veterans Affairs and other federal agencies to provide employment information to veterans, transitioning servicemembers, their families, federal human resources professionals and hiring managers. The goal is to provide consistent and accurate information, along with useful training and other resources in a manner that will inform applicants and hiring agencies.
