Join Us for a #VetsJobsChat on Employment Resources for Disabled Veterans

by admin on July 3, 2013 · 2 comments

Our Twitter chats with @USDOL and @ActingSecHarris on veterans’ employment issues have been growing since we held our first #VetsJobsChat in May, and we’re coming back on Wednesday, July 10, from 2–3 p.m. EDT to bring you answers to your questions about employment programs for veterans.

Each chat has expanded in scope and brought together a greater coalition of organizations and institutions devoted to helping veterans find jobs. This time, we’re focusing on employment services for veterans with disabilities, and we’ll be joined by the Department of Labor’s Veterans’ Employment and Training Service, its Office of Disability Employment Policy, several national veterans service organizations, employers, representatives from local American Jobs Centers, experts from the armed services and more.

Are you a disabled veteran who has questions about navigating a civilian job search? An employer looking to hire disabled veterans but are not sure where to start? Do you have friends or family struggling to find a job after transitioning from military service? We want to make sure veterans and employers have the information they need to find the programs or services that meet their needs.

Use the hashtag #VetsJobsChat to submit your questions leading up to the chat or during the live hourlong conversation. You can also email your questions in advance to Contact.VETS@dol.gov.

Is there a reason why the VA is posting jobs for current VA employees only? It’s seems like they should set the example for hiring veterans.

I appreciate the WTU Program , and it has worked to my advantage . Currently due to my injuries , I can not return to my former job which requires physical involvement – My comment is ” If I am not 100% healed – will I be without a job after my ETS ?
