As many military women and men are stationed across the world serving our country, they are also developing a unique skill set vital to today’s workforce. Indiana recognizes that veterans have a lot to offer, including a tremendous work ethic. Those who dedicated their lives to protecting our freedoms can connect to rewarding careers in Indiana through an online tool called INvets.org.

INvets.org provides the most updated information for job opportunities available in Indiana’s high-demand industries like health care, logistics, manufacturing and technology. It also gives details about the skills needed for each job, the qualifications company partners look for, and the education and training programs offered for required credentials or degrees.

Finding a purposeful career can be challenging for veterans leaving active duty and transitioning to civilian life. In fact, the national veteran unemployment rate currently hovers at 9%. With over 85,000 careers in Indiana needing to be filled, our state can do its part to lower the veteran unemployment rate while meeting the needs of local employers.

INvets.org helps veterans begin their next stage in their careers through an easy four-step process: create a profile at INvets.force.com/veteran, research Indiana’s in-demand jobs, submit an application to the most intriguing careers and then report back to INvets so they can help make that first connection. The free online tools and resources are also offered to spouses of military veterans.

Indiana is an incredible place to live and one of the most veteran-friendly states. Helping military members and their families, who have given up so much to protect us, connect with employers, resources and communities in our state is the right step.
