The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) is making it easier to connect Veterans to their jobs. A new online interactive map directs job seekers to VA careers in their desired area, with just a scroll of their mouse.
The VA Careers homepage at www.VACareers.VA.gov provides anyone interested in employment at the VA with a wealth of information. The site is dedicated to recruiting the best employees for facilities that serve and care for our nation’s Veterans. Additionally, there are helpful resources, including career information, employee testimonials, links to the blog, and information about hiring Veterans. The site also features a chat function for employment and career questions for prospective applicants.
Browsing the VA’s career opportunities is a breeze with the interactive map, which shows current openings in all fifty states and in American territories. Users can simply scroll in or out on the map to find opportunities in or near particular locations where they live or desire to work. The map shows different VA locations that users can click on and be given a list of openings at that facility. Each position features a job description and a link to directly apply .
Users can also search for openings on the interactive map based on keywords, job type or location. There is even a “Draw” function that allows users to shade in a specific area with multiple VA locations.
The VA Careers Homepage and its interactive map are a testament to how the VA is innovating and pioneering methods to link Veterans to services. For more information about VA jobs and to use the interactive map, visit www.VACareers.va.gov. Or to search for additional jobs for Veterans, visit our Jobs Page.
