LEARN – ENGAGE – HIRE
Greater Philadelphia Veterans Network provides FREE programs and services for HR Executives and local companies in the greater Philadelphia region who want to hire Veterans, National Guardsmen and Reservists.
How to Hire Our Veterans
A series of round table events for the purpose of bringing together area HR and/or Hiring Managers who are committed to hiring Veterans to share best practices.
Take An Employer to Base Day
Local employers engage with service members in various trades on an active duty base. The initiative will help employers learn more about the day-to-day responsibilities of our dedicated service members and demonstrate how those military skill sets translate to their company.
Veteran Recruitment Strategies
Provide customized training for companies who want to create and execute a local Veteran hiring initiative.
Speed Networking and Interviewing
Unique opportunity to engage with Veterans who are seeking employment. This is an invitation only event.
There are two ways to share jobs with Veterans. Employers can post them directly to the GPVN Linkedin Group and Philly Veterans Job Initiative site. (GPVN is partnering with Veteran Recruiting in this initiative.)
Through our association with the Greater Philadelphia Veteran’s Network SEPTA has gained a great deal of insight into the multi-faceted employee talent available in the military veteran community. Understanding the employment challenges facing veterans has created new avenues of outreach for us, which have yielded a number of quality employees. – Dan A (Director of Talent Acquisition – SEPTA)
