Nearly half of all veterans face a period of unemployment, despite their advanced training, work ethic and leadership skills. In Indiana, we value the more than 400,000 veterans who live in our great state, and recognize they have a lot to offer to Hoosier businesses in need of a skilled workforce. Through INvets, veterans at any age and no matter how long they served can access tools to land a career in Indiana.
As businesses continue opening, more than 100,000 in-demand jobs still need to be filled. To connect to those thousands of opportunities in a number of industries, veterans can turn to INvets for free and learn more about the certain requirements, qualifications and skills needed for those positions. With INvets, veterans and their spouses can directly connect to those hiring, get help with writing resumes and hone their soft skills.
