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.
The U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM) is looking for a few good veterans. As part of an effort to hire more veterans at the federal level, the OPM is conducting a special hiring event for military and former military personnel. Currently, a number of federal job openings have been reserved for them and will continue to be until Aug. 24. Visit FedsHireVets.gov for a full listing of openings.
The pool of jobs available includes positions with VA, OPM, and the Departments of Army, Treasury, Education and Transportation, along with other federal offices and outposts. The event offers work in fields like legal, computers, technical, human resources, administrative and technical, among many other professional areas.
