Iowa Makes Push to Hire More Veterans

May 24, 2018

Gov. Reynolds and Lt. Gov. Gregg unveiled a new initiative to hire more veterans in Iowa during their weekly press conference. The purpose of the Hiring Veterans Workshop is to educate state hiring directors about the benefits of hiring veterans. Veterans' resumes are often overlooked in the hiring process because they may not necessarily have the specific job experience, but they offer a unique skill set that can add value to state organizations. Many Iowa companies have a focus on hiring veterans and encouraging individuals to return to Iowa. The state is also encouraging veterans to work for the state government and held a hiring workshop.
