For more information: Laura Hudson, Maine Department of Labor, 207-621-5009

AUGUSTA— More than 120 employers have signed on halfway through the 2017 Maine Hire-A-vet Campaign and reported 61 hires. The campaign’s goal is for at least 100 employers to hire at least 100 veterans and military family members during 100 days. The annual effort launched on Labor Day and provides support for employers to expand the hiring of veterans.

“Through the Hire-A-Vet campaign, more employers are discovering the value veterans bring to their workforce,” said Governor Paul R. LePage. “Ann and I fully support this successful initiative, and look forward to helping make this year’s effort reach more employers and get more veterans good paying careers in our state. Whether you are a veteran or an employer, we urge you to connect with this campaign to help us meet Maine’s workforce needs. Veterans’ skills include teamwork, leadership, technology, and tremendous discipline that can benefit all of our businesses.”

A network of state and federal agencies, resources and nonprofits work together to provide employers education on military language and culture, recruiting and hiring assistance, and recognition for the hiring and advancement of veterans and military family members. Employers that want to join the 2017 Maine Hire-A-Vet Campaign can visit www.mainecareercenter.gov/hireavet.shtml to learn more, or contact Steven Roy, Campaign Coordinator, at 207-624-5156or MaineHireAVet.DOL@maine.gov with questions.
