Veteran Employment Initiative

President Obama's Order 13518 on the Employment of Veterans in the Federal Government established the Veterans Employment Initiative to increase the number of veterans employed by the Federal Government through "proactive" recruitment initiatives, programs, strategies, partnerships, and skills development and training.

DOT Creates Portal for Veterans Seeking to Transition to Transportation Jobs

The new site, and partnership between DOT and Veterans Affairs (VA), guides veterans to jobs in five categories:  aviation pilot, aviation maintenance technician, air traffic controller, commercial motor vehicle driver, and emergency medical services.
