Welcome to the U.S. Office of Personnel Management’s Government-wide Veterans Employment Website. This website is a critical component of the Federal Government’s strategy for the recruitment and employment of Veterans.
On November 9, 2009, President Barack Obama signed Executive Order 13518, Employment of Veterans in the Federal Government, which establishes the Veterans Employment Initiative. The Initiative is a strategic, yet very straightforward, approach to helping the men and women who have served our country in the military find employment in the Federal Government. It also underscores the importance of aligning the talents of these individuals with key positions so the Government is better positioned to meet mission objectives and citizens are better served.
This website is a direct result of the Executive Order. In partnership with the Departments of Defense, Labor, Veterans Affairs, Homeland Security, and other Federal agencies, our vision is that this Website will be the preeminent source for Federal employment information for our Veterans, transitioning service members, their families, Federal HR professionals and hiring managers. Our goal is to provide consistent and accurate information and useful training and other resources in a way that will inform both the applicant and the hiring agency.
We hope you continue to visit us in the coming weeks and months as we expand this site to include new features, updates on the progress of the initiative, and additional resources.
