Information about jobs and employment opportunities

Published 12/18/2006 03:02 PM   |    Updated 08/07/2012 04:30 PM
Where do I find information about jobs and employment opportunities?

The primary website to check is http://www.usajobs.gov/   This is a one-stop source of information for Federal jobs and employment throughout federal government. This site provides the ability to do job searches by geographic location, job type, agency, etc., and to obtain comprehensive information about jobs and employment for veterans, obtain forms, etc.

In addition, there are several websites at VA that provide information about employment.  They are: http://www.va.gov/jobs/  and http://www.vacareers.va.gov/index.asp
VA Careers is the official job board Web site for the Department of Veterans Affairs and is updated daily. VACareers.va.gov assists potential VA employees in finding job openings throughout the agency; open positions are posted on this website as soon as they are made available, including positions that become available at newly opened facilities.  Please note that local VA facility job vacancies are also handled locally by that  facility. You may wish to contact the local Human Resources office at that facility to get the most up-to-date information. You can locate information about various VA facilities by going to http://www.va.gov/landing2_locations.htm
http://www.va.gov/nursing/ is VA's nursing website that provides information on this discipline with links to health care jobs information, scholarship and awards information; click on the applicable links on this website.

http://www.vba.va.gov/bln/vre/emp_resources.htm is the Vocational Rehabilitation site that includes information about employment.

Many state governments have information specifically for veterans regarding job opportunities with that state government. Please check your state government website.
