Q. As a disabled unemployed veteran, how do I find out about various job-seeking resources tailored for veterans like me?
A. A good starting place would be our Veteran Readiness and Employment (VR&E) page: https://www.michigan.gov/mvaa/other-benefits-and-resources/panel-federal/veteran-readiness. The VR&E Program, formerly known as vocational rehabilitation, assists veterans with service-connected disabilities to prepare for, find and keep suitable jobs. For veterans with service-connected disabilities so severe that they cannot immediately consider work, this program offers services to improve their ability to live as independently as possible.
Q. Where do I start in finding a job as an unemployed veteran?
A. A number of tools and resources for employees seeking employment are listed on the MVAA website. Here you will find information on entrepreneurship opportunities, how to find a job, licensing and credentialing opportunities, tips for job seekers, a list of Veteran-Friendly Employers, and much more. Contact your local Veteran Service Officer for additional assistance. Beyond these Michigan-sponsored resources, a number of not-for-profit and federal government tools are available to job-seeking veterans including Hero 2 Hired, the 100,000 Jobs Mission, and the USCC's Hiring Our Heroes events, among others.
