Glassdoor names VA among the top employers of Veterans

Glassdoor Names

 

Glassdoor, a job and recruiting site, lists U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs one of the top entities hiring Veterans

Glassdoor, one of the world’s largest job and recruiting sites, recently singled out seven top employers of Veterans and their families, and it’s no surprise that the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) made the list, along with Booz Allen, Home Depot, Southwest Airlines and others.

A total of 123,608 Veterans — more than 30 percent of the workforce — work at VA, according to the latest federal government data. Glassdoor said Veterans choose VA careers for its generous employee benefits, such as tuition assistance and loan repayment. A physician quoted in the article commended VA for its “great mission, incredible benefits (and) good work/life balance.”

Through the Transitioning Military Program, VA also has well-paying careers specifically for Veterans with healthcare skills. Veterans of healthcare fields successfully work as health technicians, Intermediate Care Technicians (ICTs), mental health providers, nurses, physicians and support staff in other healthcare occupations.

ICTs, for instance, are former basic medical technicians, combat medic specialists, basic hospital corpsmen or basic health services technicians applying their skills to care for fellow Veterans. (Meet ICTs Ryan White, Anthony Juarez and other VA employees.)

Other benefits of a VA healthcare career include 36 to 49 days paid time off per year, depending on the leave tier, and the ability to apply military service time to a civil service pension, participate in a 401(k) with up to 5 percent in employer contributions and gain access to a range of exceptional health insurance plans for individuals and families.

Are you transitioning from the military? See if a career with VA is the right choice for you.
