Hiring Veterans

There are more than 500 veterans, dependents and active-duty members attending the University of Iowa during any given term, and it is the purpose of the Veteran Student Services Office to provide all of those students with the resources, guidance and assistance they need to be successful Hawkeyes.

The Pomerantz Career Center partners with the Veteran Student Services Office to ensure that all veterans have access to career services and hiring opportunities as well.

Helpful Resources

  • UIVA - The University of Iowa Veterans Association (Student Organization)
     
  • U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs - Veterans Employment Toolkit
    Our aim is to help employers, managers and supervisors, human resource professionals, and employee assistance program (EAP) providers relate to and support their employees who are Veterans and members of the Reserve and National Guard. In this toolkit, you can learn about Veterans and the military, such as what Veterans bring to the workplace and what the military structure and culture is like. You can also learn how to support employees who are Veterans or members of the Reserve or National Guard in the workplace, through reading about common challenges and how to help, reviewing communication tips, reading a report about Veterans in the workplace, or by downloading handouts to use with EAP clients. Finally, Veterans and their family members can find employment resources for Veterans.
     
  • Veteran Employment Leading Practices 
    America’s employers play an important role in employing service members as they return home and seek private sector opportunities.  This toolkit is one set of resources for corporations to create rewarding career opportunities for servicemen and women, and to benefit from the strong talent pool represented in veterans and their families.  The Institute for Veterans and Military Families at Syracuse University and General Electric partnered to curate these best practices, tools, processes, and resources in order to increase employment of US veterans.
