As a transitioning service member, you have a unique chance to build on your commitment to the country through one of the many civilian career paths at VA. Your military experience and skills and deep understanding of our patients can go a long way, as you work to improve the lives of fellow Veterans. If this sounds like your kind of future, consider becoming part of our dedicated team.

VA provides numerous opportunities to Veterans with a background in health care, including the Intermediate Care Technician (ICT) Program—a career track for those with training and experience as medics, hospital corpsmen, health service technicians and para rescue specialists. We also offer positions in non-clinical areas such as IT and administration. No matter which path you pursue, you’ll receive outstanding benefits, generous education support and other great resources to help you fully transition to civilian life and make the most of it, both professionally and personally.

What’s more, we give preference to Veterans applying for competitive roles (i.e., those that are announced publicly to a pool of candidates). You are eligible if you:

• Are applying to a position listed as an Excepted Career.
• Were discharged under conditions other than dishonorable.
• Were not retired from service (you may be medically retired and qualify for disabled preference eligibility).

Additional information on the Veterans’ Preference program can be found here.
