Gov. Hickenlooper announces new job resources for veterans
Gov. John Hickenlooper today announced a new resource, “Hire A Colorado Vet,” offered by the Colorado Department of Labor and Employment (CDLE) to help veterans connect with employment opportunities.
CDLE created a website, www.hireacoloradovet.gov, where veterans can post résumés, job-search and learn about new job postings before the general public. Additionally, employers are able to post job openings or search for qualified veteran applicants on this website.
Hire A Colorado Vet.Gov is a free service of the Colorado Department of Labor and Employment. The website is a kind of military-to-private business pipeline, helping veterans and employers alike recognize how the skills gained in any of the branches of service can be readily applied in a wide range of civilian careers.
