June 1, 2014 marked the start of Operation Hire: Maryland's 100 Day Veteran Hiring Challenge. This initiative keeps with the commitment to support veteran employment and is in alignment with the O'Malley-Brown Administration's GOAL of full employment for veterans by the end of 2015. Operation Hire will complement the supportive services already in place for our Maryland veterans. The campaign is good for our veterans and families, it is good for our communities and for our businesses.
Employers can register to participate by visiting the Maryland Department of Veterans Affairs (MDVA) website. In addition, employers can access a number of human resources strategies to boost veteran recruitment.
Veterans who are seeking employment can also visit the site to see who is participating, as well as to learn about State resources to assist them in finding employment.
Operation Hire will run through September 9. Upon conclusion of the campaign, employers will be recognized for their participation. Special recognition will be given to the employer with the most hires and the employer with the largest percentage of hires by workforce size.
Operation Hire, join the campaign today!
