We’re talking about veterans, not veterinarians. The Colorado Department of Labor and Employment has just launched a new resource “Hire a Colorado Vet” to help veterans find employment opportunities. Besides offering tools for resume help and interview preparation, the site creates a way for veterans to connect with potential employers. Employers are able to post job openings, and veterans can post an online job application that employers can search to find qualified applicants.
In a recent press release, Governor Hickenlooper gave his support for the program:
“Veterans bring great job skills, values and experience to an employer. The Hire A Colorado Vet program allows our country’s veterans to connect with employers. This program will help to ensure that when veterans return home they are welcomed, respected – and employed,” Hickenlooper said. “Employers who hire veterans will tell you they have made a real investment in their business with each hire.”
