At Mt. Carmel Veterans Service Center (Mt. Carmel), it is our goal to find you and your family a career that creates purpose and meaning in your life. To do this, we provide many services that pair veterans and their spouses with the right job in Colorado Springs. Our services provide local businesses the opportunity to employ America’s finest – our veterans.
Jobs for Veterans
At Mt. Carmel, we have career specialists available to assist veterans and veteran spouses in job search and training. We offer one-on-one assistance with someone that’s been in a situation similar to yours. With this support, you and your significant other receive the backing of our entire team. We can work with you to develop your resume, network with others, gain valuable job leads, learn interviewing techniques, and engage in mock interview events. We also host job fairs for veterans and their spouses throughout the year, plus put on some workshops and networking events to help you feel more comfortable.
Jobs for Veteran Spouses: The MilSpouse Career Program
Veteran jobs aren’t all we specialize in; we strive to find quality jobs for veteran spouses who serve on the home front as well. Veteran families also sacrifice for our country; therefore, they too, deserve only the best. Our MilSpouse Career Program offers assistance with direct support. We provide the same services provided to our veterans which include career readiness workshops, networking opportunities, resource referrals, and volunteer positions.
Job Fairs for Veterans & Veteran Spouses
At Mt. Carmel, we host regular job fairs to give local employers the opportunity to showcase a variety of new jobs available for veterans and jobs for veteran spouses. Likewise, veterans and spouses can connect to employers that want the skill, dedication, and loyalty offered by a veteran employee. Each job fair for veterans and their families includes 10 to 30 employers. We also provide industry-specific markets to help pair you with the position that you desire. The participants of these job fairs have already been vetted and ensure you’ll receive a quality position with livable wages. After all, you deserve only the best, and we want to guarantee you find the job that fulfills you.
Employers want to provide jobs for veterans because they know they will receive a worker that is dedicated and committed. At Mt. Carmel, we work with many local companies to place our clients in positions every day. We also offer mentorship opportunities that teach valuable skills to our veterans in their desired career field. Employers can also join the internship program to provide jobs to veterans and their spouses. Mentorship enables workers to gain additional skills and challenges beyond their comfort zone. One of the benefits of becoming an intern is that you don’t leave gaps in your employment history and have a better chance of finding future work. Plus, at the end of the internship, many companies will offer paid positions to veterans that have proved they are committed to the company.
