From the Veterans Job Fair

We are proud that 26% of our workforce is made up of veterans, but we aren’t stopping here.

Today at the Grand Hyatt Washington Hotel in downtown DC, DHS recruitment specialists greeted veterans for a job fair. Attendees got information on career opportunities and how to apply for positions within the department. Over 700 veterans signed up today for more information.

Deputy Secretary Jane Holl Lute, herself a veteran, stopped by the fair and addressed attendees. She spoke about the importance of providing veterans the opportunity to apply for jobs at DHS, and expressed her personal thanks for their service.

We at DHS want to be a model in veteran hiring in the federal government, and our efforts so far have significantly increased veteran representation within the department. We promote veteran hiring, contracting and procurement in all recruitment efforts, recognizing we owe veterans more than gratitude; at DHS, we feel we owe veterans opportunity.
