I should start by saying that veteran’s with service-connected disability ratings qualify for civil service preference. This can be quite beneficial if you’re considering entering the federal job market after leaving military service. USA jobs acts as the federal government’s digital hiring portal ? and should be the starting place for any veteran considering civil service.
Build a profile in advance of applying for work, upload necessary documentation and references, and then dive into that market. And know that if you’re entering the federal work force as a service-connected disabled veteran, you not only have civil service preference but also protections in place in the event of absences from work linked to your disabilities. The federal bureaucracy isn’t a fit for all, but the protections offered to service-connected disabled veterans may outstrip what the private sector would provide.
Also worth noting is that includes an eBenefits Employment Center Click Here For The US Government Veterans Job Board
After selecting your state or territory, click on the link for the applicable Regional Benefit Office. From there, select ‘Visitor Information’ and ‘Veterans Service Organizations’ along the left-hand side of the web page for the Regional Benefit Office. Veterans Service Organizations are not employed by the VA, but they can offer assistance and guidance at the local level ? and that carries enormous weight.
