Our goal at VA Careers is to recruit exceptional health care professionals and support staff to ensure that our Nation’s Veterans receive the absolute highest quality care. This mission to hire the best is the driving force of everything we do—and one of the more visible aspects of that mission is our website, VAcareers.VA.gov.

We are proud to announce our recent recognition as a Platinum award winner for “Best Employee Recruitment Site – Healthcare System” at the 17th Annual Healthcare Internet Conference. This year, VA was selected out of over 1,100 entries from the digital healthcare space by a panel of over 121 expert judges.

About the competition, eHealthcare Leadership Awards chairman Mark Gothberg explains, “Organizations made major improvements in their websites, increased their involvement in social media, more fully integrated newer media outlets with traditional marketing vehicles, and expanded mobile efforts to better serve current and future customers.”

We want VAcareers.VA.gov to be a place where all interested candidates can access useful information to inform their career decisions. We need the site to work as an easy-to-navigate, efficient portal for applying to jobs at VA. To that end, we have made updates to enhance visual interest, showcase employee stories, and remove unnecessary content in order to improve navigation so that the site both looks good, and works well.

Most significant to the new VA Careers site is the responsive way in which it is programmed – you’ll have a good experience whether you access the site on your phone, your tablet, or your desktop.

For us, the award is validation that we are doing things right in our efforts to serve you and by extension, our Nation’s Veterans. With the national spotlight on health care and a rapidly evolving digital landscape, we recognize that the competition for patients, technology, and talent is as high as it has ever been. We are proud to have risen above the competition and look forward to continued advancements and growth as we pursue our mission.
