Veterans Hiring Resources

The Commonwealth of Virginia is the single largest employer in Virginia, and the elected representatives of the people of Virginia have unanimously voted to place the Commonwealth at the vanguard of veteran employers by requiring most state agencies to achieve certification as a best practice veteran employer through the Virginia Values Veterans (V3) Program.
