How the Program Works

U.S.VETS Career Network seeks partnerships with companies that will provide long-term employment and professional growth for veterans. Working directly with recruiters and human resource managers, we connect skilled veterans with access to the hidden job market.

Veterans we refer have all the qualifications, certifications, transferable skills and experiences they need to succeed in the roles that employers offer. To ensure veterans’ continued success, we follow up with them at regular intervals during their first year of employment, ensuring retention.
