What is the best way for my business to connect with and hire a Veteran?
The Department of Labor's Veterans' Employment and Training Service (DOL VETS) partner with state workforce agencies to operate the American Job Center (AJC) network providing employment and training services to jobseekers and employers at about 2,500 locations nationwide. Around 1 million Veterans (14 million Americans total) received employment and training services at AJCs last year. These AJCs offer free employer services that include providing workforce information, writing job descriptions, reviewing applicants resumes, organizing job fairs, providing places to conduct interviews, pre-screening applicants, assessing applicants skills, and referral of job-ready candidates. These AJCs can also help you post your job openings nationally on the National Labor Exchange (NLx), www.us.jobs. All transitioning service members are encouraged to use this site to search for jobs. Please note that all DOL services at AJCs are paid by taxpayers and are provided free of charge to both jobseekers and employers.
