Webinar on Hiring and Training Veterans: A Resource for the Water Sector

EPA is hosting a webinar for water sector professionals, utility managers, and human resources staff to learn how to access the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) programs to hire and train veterans for careers at water and wastewater utilities. This is similar to the web event held on September 13 for state primacy agencies on the same subject. If you were not able to participate in that event, here is a second opportunity.

During the webinar, VA staff in Washington, D.C., will outline the benefits of hiring veterans and provide information on working with local VA employment coordinators to find qualified candidates. The webinar is being co-sponsored by the American Water Works Association and the Water Environment Federation and is part of a May 2012 memorandum of understanding (MOU) between EPA and the VA Vocational Rehabilitation Employment Services to help connect veterans with disabilities to career opportunities in the water sector.
