Looking to hire a veteran? Then you probably already know the many reasons that veterans make excellent employees. Their military experience has provided them with education, training, values, leadership skills and teamwork experience.

Two steps to hire a vet

Follow these two simple steps to find and hire qualified veterans.

  1. Begin by posting your job opening on your state job bank. Follow the instructions on your state job bank website to post jobs.
  2. Next, contact a Veterans Employment Representative at an American Job Center. Let them know you want to hire a veteran. They may ask for details of your job listing(s). They will be able to help you identify qualified veterans.

Translate military skills

Many veterans have specific skills that can be put to good use in your workplace. To learn about military occupations that may share skills and work experience with the jobs you're hiring for, visit the Civilian-to-Military Occupation Translator.

What about tax incentives?

You may also be eligible for a tax incentive for hiring a veteran. Read about the Work Opportunity Tax Credit (WOTC) Vow to Hire Heroes provisions.
