Virginia prides itself on its commitment to Veterans! 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.
Virginia State Agency work is mission focused and provides meaningful benefits to the citizens of the state and the country as a whole. Come join the thousands of veterans who are already hard at work striving to build the new Virginia Economy by providing innovative state government products and services to the citizens and businesses of the Commonwealth!
