By: Mike Stiles - Monday, August 10, 2020

INDIANAPOLIS – A new program has been launched to match veterans with careers in Indiana.

Northeast Indiana lawmakers are encouraging veterans and Indiana companies to sign up for INVet's next-generation website that connects service members directly with Hoosier businesses.

INvets.org is a free resource for veterans to interact and find the most current information about job opportunities available in health care, logistics, manufacturing and tech, and other high demand industries throughout the state. State Representative Denny Zent of Angola says the program provides details about the skills required, with links to education and training partners that offer the training, credentials or degrees needed.

Being a veteran himself, Zent says as he understands some of the challenges that can come up when returning to civilian life. Searching for a job can be stressful. Zent says INvets is solely dedicated to helping our service members find a worthwhile career in Indiana. Employers in high-demand industries can also benefit by hiring those who have bravely served our country.

To sign up for the INvets program, veterans should visint www.INvets.com Once a service member completes their profile on the site, their information is directed to participating companies. Employers who sign up for INvets have free access to upload company information, job opportunities and review veteran profiles.

Since INvets launched, more than 150 companies and over 1,000 veterans have participated.

Additional resources are available through the Military Family Relief Fund COVID-19 Emergency Assistance program. That information is online at www.in.gov/dva.
