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.
