Are you having trouble finding qualified candidates for open positions or positions that will become open in the next few years?

If so, please consider veterans as a potential labor pool for candidates. Their military experience may have given them the skills and knowledge that you are looking for. And if they need training, the G.I. Bill is available to help them get what they need. In addition, the Department of Veterans Affairs has a number of programs that provide financial incentives to employers who hire veterans.

Please plan to attend this free webinar hosted by USEPA and sponsored by AWWA and WEF.

The speaker will be Angela Wilcher, Employment Coordinator, Dept. of Veterans Affairs in Washington, D.C. She will outline the benefits of hiring veterans and show you how to work with your local Department of Veterans Affairs Employment Coordinators to find qualified candidates for your organization.
