Benefits and Resources


Hire Minnesota's Veterans billboardLooking for employment is a daunting task. Frequently, a Veteran’s military training and experience does not easily translate to fit the requirements that a civilian company seeks. There are many resources offered by the Minnesota Department of Veterans Affairs (MDVA) and other community organizations to assist Veterans through a job search.

Job Search Resources for Veterans

MDVA partners with the Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development (DEED) to support Veterans as they put their military skills to work in a new career. We recommend Veterans connect with their local Veteran Employment Representative because they are aware of businesses looking to hire Veterans. You can find your representative and other resources on the CareerForce website.

Why Hire Veterans?

Hiring Minnesota Veterans is good for business; they possess qualities such as work ethic, discipline, teamwork, and reliability, just to name a few. They are ready for their next mission back home in large companies and small businesses across Minnesota. If you are looking for a smart, dependable employee – look to a Veteran.
