As the saying goes, March is “in like a lion, out like a lamb.” Much of the country starts to thaw out from winter, we enjoy more daylight in the evenings, and eventually, spring starts to show its colors. For VA Recruitment, March marks the beginning of a busy season of recruitment events. As of today, you have 14 chances this month to meet VA recruiters and subject matter experts at various job fairs across the country, and many more throughout the spring.

From Salem, Oregon to San Juan, Puerto Rico, VA’s presence at hiring fairs across the country is representative of our reach and hiring needs nationwide.

We urge you to view our Calendar of Events and find an event near you. In addition to networking with fellow job seekers, you will have the opportunity to interact face-to-face with consultants from the VHA National Recruitment Program, local recruiters, and other VA employees. According to Crystal Waite, VHA Healthcare Recruitment and Marketing National Events Coordinator, this time is invaluable for potential candidates.

“They have direct access to someone who can answer their questions, provide point of contact information, discuss job availability, locations, employment requirements and benefits,” says Waite.

VA also uses social media to promote attendance at some national events, and you can follow along on Twitter (@VAcareers) and search #workatVA. By following our account and #workatVA, you can learn about job openings, upcoming Twitter Chats and valuable hiring information in real time.

    I enrolled in VA Healthcare nearly 3 years ago. What is it going to take for VA to send me my VA ID card? Without the VA ID card I am required to receive healthcare elsewhere which is expensive. When I went to the VA then the nurse asked if I wanted a pneumonia shot. I told him no but that I needed a shingles vaccination and a tetanus vaccination, neither of them was prescribed. Three months later I contracted shingles and the pain was such that I was unable to do my job efficiently and have been unemployed since April 14 2013. Do I qualify for a VA pension due to the neglect of ignoring my request for those vaccinations? I received a tetanus shot on February 15 2014 when my daughter took be to the Harbor Hospital Emergency center to be treated for dog bites that I received when attempting to break up a dog fight in my front room between a Rottweiler and a Pit Bull. It resulted in my receiving 40 dog bites. My daughter did not take me to the VA Health Center as I did not have a VA ID Card. I was billed for over $1000.00.
