Looking for Qualified Veteran Employees?

As part of “Hire a Veteran Month,” the Chamber is providing local employers with tools and resources to better content themselves with the thousands of talented veterans seeking employement across the region.

Today, we learn about a great resource – The Verification of Military Experience and Training (VMET) Document – giving employers easy and fast access to verify the qualification of veteran candidates you may encounter.

VMET documents are available only through Army, Navy, Air Force and Marine Corps Transition Support Offices and are intended for servicemembers who have at least six months of active service. These documents can save employers on the time it takes to conduct thorough background checks on candidates.  For more information on VMETs, please click here.
