Washington, D.C. - The United States Office of Personnel Management (OPM) Veteran Invitational Program (VIP) continued outreach to veterans at the Peterson Air Force Base, Colorado Springs, CO. The program was developed to provide Federal job information to those serving in the military.
"The VIP offers veterans who are transitioning from military service the opportunity to use their skills in the Federal civilian service," stated Associate Director Marta Perez, Division for Human Capital Leadership and Merit System Accountability. "These veterans have defended their country and protected the liberty of others. They have earned special hiring considerations."
OPM staffed their Working for America booth and also offered three well-attended presentations that provided information on resume writing and interviewing techniques; details about veterans' preferences and special hiring authorities; and demonstrations of the USAJOBS website, the official job site of the Federal government.
"The information being disseminated to the men and women on our base provides valuable insights into the Federal hiring process and the unique benefits available to veterans," said Kim Cosley, manager of Peterson's Family Support Center. "I commend OPM for its effort and initiative and hope it continues this assertive outreach effort."
Our mission is to Recruit, Retain and Honor a World-Class Workforce to Serve the American People. OPM supports U.S. agencies with personnel services and policy leadership including staffing tools, guidance on labor-management relations and programs to improve work force performance.
