Part of growing as an Association means widening our partnership net and including more organizations that align with our mission and primarily, our Members’ needs. One area that you, our Members, consistently request are additional veteran outreach opportunities, and we are happy to announce that we’ve signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Student Veterans of America–a 501(c)(3) coalition of student-veteran groups on college campuses across the globe. With a network of over 1,300 schools and 500,000 student veterans, there are plenty of opportunities to connect with student veterans looking for meaningful employment.
Our partnership with SVA was established in cooperation with our close partner, the National Association of State Workforce Agencies (NASWA) and was announced last week the 9th Annual SVA National Conference in Anaheim, California.
As part of the MOU, we developed a career site for the organization and Member jobs will now be syndicated to http://StudentVeteransofAmerica.jobs. After meeting the SVA team in Anaheim, we are more than excited to connect our Members with this growing organization and look forward to giving our Member face-to-face time at our upcoming 2017 Annual Meeting & Conference in Indianapolis, Indiana.
Join me in welcoming the Student Veterans of America to the DirectEmployers family!
