In Spring of 2020, the Veteran’s Employment and Training Service at the US Department of Labor produced the Employer Guide to Hiring Veterans. This guide has particular relevance to apprenticeship as Employers recognize the value veterans bring to the workplace but often find it challenging to connect with transitioning service members and veterans seeking employment. Veterans are in high demand so it requires dedicated efforts by employers to find and hire veterans.
The guide intends to:
- Provide accurate information about service member and veteran demographics;
- Share federal, state and other resources for employers to facilitate veteran employment; and
- Make recommendations on how to attract, train, and retain veterans.
