Veterans have a special camaraderie with each other, and they extend that bond to their clinical care team, especially those who share a military background. From injured active duty personnel to Veterans of all ages, our patients rely on their VA caregivers to deliver unique and resourceful treatment, often for complex medical conditions. As a result, the entire VA care team receives deep appreciation from many brave, grateful individuals who have served our Nation.
But helping our Nation's Veterans is about more than just providing world-class health care. It’s also about helping them find employment opportunities, as well. As such, we support Veterans Preference and are committed to hiring Veterans to help them make the transition to civilian life.
Veteran Employment Services Office (VESO) is our lead office to attract, recruit, and retain Veterans in the Department. Established in 2008, it seeks to provide employment services to Veterans, particularly severely injured or service-connected Veterans, who are qualified to fill positions in VA.
If you are transitioning from the military, a Veteran already, or an active Reserve or National Guard member, we invite you to explore the benefits of continuing your career at VA. Or, you may explore other Veteran-hiring initiatives through fedshirevets.gov or opm.gov.
And remember, you don't have to be separated from the military to apply or take advantage of any of the programs or support offered by these offices.
