Hire a Veteran

 

When you imagine the ideal employee, what comes to mind?

  • Someone who shows up on time and follows through on assignments?
  • A creative problem-solver who works well in a team?
  • A leader with varied skills and experience?

U.S. military veterans offer employers all these strengths and more — and the colleges of DCCCD can help you find veterans who have enhanced their military background with college education and training.

We offer two ways to connect with U.S. military veteran candidates:

Register With Military Preferred Hiring (MPH)

Registering with DCCCD’s new Military Preferred Hiring (MPH) initiative gives your company access to qualified candidates with valuable experience gained through service to our country — plus relevant education to support and expand on their military training.

To learn more about the benefits of the program and how your company can participate,

Connect With Veterans Through DCCCD Career Services

The Career Services Offices at the seven colleges of DCCCD welcome opportunities to connect employers with dynamic students and alumni — including veterans — looking for work.

Resources for Employers include:

  • Free job listings for full- or part-time positions and internships
  • Career fairs on campus
  • And more!

Let the Career Services staff know you are interested in hiring veterans, and they’ll help you tailor your outreach efforts to reach our veteran students and alumni.
