Website Helps Veterans Build Their Resumes, Find Work

LOS ANGELES (CBS) — The unemployment numbers for all Americans is bad enough, but factor in the jobless rate among the men and women who served in the armed forces and the numbers are …well, worse.

The United States Department of Veterans Affairs is trying to tackle the problem of veteran joblessness with a website dedicated to the “reintegration, retention and hiring of Veteran employees at the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). We offer career-search tools for Veterans seeking employment at VA, career development services for our existing Veterans, and coaching and reintegration support for military service members. ‘VA for Vets’ is your gateway to a rewarding career serving our nation’s Veterans. ”

VA For Vets also helps with resume building, networking, job and career fairs and more.
