During his visit at the University of Albany Nanoscale Science and Engineering complex earlier today, President Obama delivered a speech regarding job growth and the restoration of middle class security. In his “To-do list“, the President called on congress to help put veterans to work using skills developed in the military by passing legislation  to create a Veterans Job Corps.

 “Congress should help vets from Iraq and Afghanistan find good jobs when they come home.”

 – Barack Obama, May 8, 2012.

Currently, businesses that hire unemployed veterans are eligible to receive The Returning Heroes Tax Credit, part of the American Jobs Act.

Since the opening of business in 2010, Walrath Recruiting has offered extended, free services to returning Veterans who are re-entering the job market.  These services include resume writing, job seeking guidance, interview coaching and of course, employment opportunities.  Walrath also offers discounted recruitment services to companies that are Veteran-owned.  If you are a Veteran who is looking for employment opportunities, or a Vet and local business in need of recruitment services, we will be glad to serve you!
