Veterans Employment Website Launches

Indianapolis, Indiana, USA (September 6, 2020) VRI – Veterans seeking employment can now connect to Indiana employers via a website.

In 2016, a study by the United States Bureau of Labor Statistics proved that Indiana is the best place for employment for veterans. The Hoosier state is working to keep the unemployment rate low while attracting more veterans and local lawmakers announced the launch of INvets.

The website is a free resource for veterans to interact and find information about job opportunities. Veterans can create a profile to attract employers and browse careers by type. The career industries veterans can choose from include health care, logistics, manufacturing and other high-demand trades.

Not only is the website used to help current Indiana veterans, but it is aiming to attract more veterans to the Hoosier state.

Once a service member completes his or her profile on the site, his or her information is directed to participating companies. Employers who sign up for INvets have free access to upload company information, job opportunities and review veteran profiles. Click here to sign up.

Additional resources are available through the Military Family Relief Fund COVID-19 Emergency Assistance program, which is designed to help military families experiencing financial hardship. Click here for more information.
