Hiring Veterans: Jobs of the Week for July 8, 2024

Washington, D.C. — The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) continues its commitment to supporting veterans in their transition to civilian life through various employment opportunities. This week, the VA has announced several job openings and hiring events aimed at veterans, military spouses, and transitioning service members.

The VA is hosting numerous virtual and in-person job fairs across the country. Notable events include the Corporate Fellowship and Skills-Based Fellowship Information Session on August 1, the National Virtual Career Fair for Veterans on August 27, and regional job fairs in locations such as Philadelphia, Denver, and North Chicago throughout August.

Additionally, the VA emphasizes the importance of rural job opportunities, aiming to meet veterans where they live. With nearly a quarter of U.S. veterans residing in rural areas, the VA is dedicated to building a strong workforce in these communities, offering roles that span from medical professionals to support staff.

In Arizona, veterans can look forward to targeted hiring events and job openings at local VA facilities. The Phoenix VA Health Care System and the Southern Arizona VA Health Care System are actively recruiting for various positions, including nursing, administration, and support roles. These facilities offer competitive benefits and the opportunity to make a significant impact on the lives of Arizona’s veteran community.

The VA has also streamlined its hiring processes to reduce time-to-hire by 10%, making it faster for veterans to start their new careers. Efforts include more direct hire authorities and agreements to expedite the hiring process.
