Happy Veterans Day!

Liberty comes at a price and the men and women who serve our country are willing to pay that price for our freedom and for peace. Often, we don’t dwell on the dangers that face our servicemen and women as they work to protect our freedom. But, it is there. Today we honor and celebrate those who are willing to put their lives on the line for millions of Americans through their service in our armed forces. We are grateful to each and every one of you. Today, we thank you, we salute you, we honor you Veterans!

“Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.”

-John 15:13

Social Security Administration looking for Veterans to Hire

The Social Security Administration is looking for veterans with exceptional customer service skills who are interested in serving the American public.
The Social Security Administration recognizes that individuals who have served in our armed forces are disciplined in the values that our agency values, like loyalty, respect, flexibility and integrity, and they bring those positive attributes with them to the workplace. The following narrative will give you more information about federal veterans’ programs and who to contact in each area with an expression of interest in careers at Social Security.
Additional information about careers at Social Security can be found at the following websites:

The Veterans’ Preference
Veterans who are disabled or who served on active duty in the Armed Forces during specific time periods or military campaigns are entitled to preference over non-veterans in competitive hiring selections. If you are eligible for veterans’ preference, you may find a position that interests you through our Career Search on USA JOBS. If the vacancy states that it is open to all sources and you are qualified for the position, you will receive veterans’ preference accordingly. In order to receive your preference, you must send us proof of your military service along with your application (read the vacancy announcement to learn what documentation is required). Visit the Office of Personnel Management’s USAJOBS web site for details about veterans’ preference. http://www.fedshirevets.gov/job/vetpref/index.aspx
Veterans’ Recruitment Appointment (VRA)
Veterans with certain military service records may be hired for positions at grades GS-11 and below without a competitive selection process, if they meet the qualifications for the job. Certain conditions of employment may apply to employees hired under the VRA program.
30 Percent or More Disabled Veterans Program
Like the VRA program, veterans with service-connected disabilities of 30 percent or more may be hired into positions without a competitive selection process, if they meet the qualifications for the job. Unlike the VRA program, there is no limitation on the level at which you may be hired.
To learn more about these opportunities for veterans, visit the Office of Personnel Management’s website http://www.fedshirevets.gov/job/shav/index.aspx
