VA for Vets is a  career support program that offers Veterans access to the tools they need to launch or advance their civilian careers at VA, where they can go far to serve their fellow Veterans.

The VA for Vets program features real-time, on-demand, round-the-clock support services. These services include the Career Center, where Veterans can translate their military skills to civilian jobs, take self-assessments, build easy-to-read resumes, apply to open VA positions, and save all results into one profile. The VA for Vets website also offers coaches for Veterans to reach out to for one-on-one support and guidance, from creating a federal civilian resume to transitioning into the civilian workforce. Deployment lifecycle resources, webinars, and videos are also available on the VA for Vets website.

Veterans also have the option to use the VA for Vets Virtual Collaboration Workspace, available 24 hours a day, and 7 days a week, to hold private meetings and collaboration with coaches, supervisors, coworkers, or HR professionals to receive support building a resume, searching and applying for jobs, or preparing for interviews.

    I not only work for the VA, I was recruited by the VA to be a STEP, and now the program is called Pathways. I was hired as a student trainee, and have worked in the field that I will call my last career. I salute the VA for the job the entire team is doing Nationwide. JR

    fOR MY SITUATION THE va AS ALWAYS BEEN THERE AND MORE. I AVOIDED UTILIZATION OF THE va FOR TWO REASONS THE MISINFORMATION/IMPRESSION AND BEING YOUNG NOT BE LABLED AS disabled. However, with retirement it allowed me a second opportunity to have my problems to be reconsider. I attempt to provide my services as a PA an d desired to do that in the VA system. Now I am recognized as 100$ disabled by Social Security and my treatments and work comp benefit is provided by Federal Departmen t of Labor. Any funds I receive from SOCIAL SECURITY IS OFFSET from SSDI on workers comp.

    I am glad to see that progress is taking place toward improving to assist our Vets and help with transition into Civilian Job market. During my first term 1970 to 1973, I attended Basic Paratroop training than assigned to the 8th Inf Div, 1st Bn 509th Mechanized Airborne. The Army itself was in transition from the draft to All Volunteer Army. At first attempt premed but didn’t have a strong academic foothold and Jobs were scarce in my age bracket, AFTER 6 -9 MONTHS DECIDED TO RETURN to Active Duty AND train for the Next War , that never came except 2 weeks before my retirement date of approval. Desert Storm c
    came and went in 2 weeks except maintaining fly zone security. I requested Greece assignment, after Desert Storm DOD was having difficulty filing the assignment. Therefore I applied . 2 weeks later Desert Storm seized operations and sent to Greece with a diversion to Sinop Turkey. I was first and last PA assign full tour assignment after WWII. during the multiple reenlistments I incurred several injuries that neither was directly related related to service, except for being on active duty at time of occurrence. Upon my retirement I retained Tricare, and had insurance , private and Teamster. My injuries includes strain neck from Parachute landing, resulting in a severe whip lash, constant back and leg pain, old shoulder strain. And the start of Asthma / RAD, elevated blood pressures. Diabetes a condition I didn’t know I had but displayed the skin eruptions like hives, difficulty breath, chest pain , easy bruising and fibromyalgia . When I made contact with the VA and applied for disability $110, 00 . After my first enlistment , The education GI BILL WAS DELAYED AND WOULDN’T arrive on time, I was forced to not return for the next semester and went off looking employment. After several jobs I decided reenter the ARMY. I had a successful career, Applied for PA School , made it to CWO 3 with all chronic issues that the VA ruled only 10% . All other issue was dismissed . The VA finally became my Primary Care Provider until my severe TBI. The PCP will take care of my needs but only as allowed and by copay, and I am grateful. One cannot be upset with a copay of 2 dollars to 10 dollar. Now the VA is not only helping with general health issues, but have encourage me to reapply to recognize other maladies as service connected.

    I worked for the VA for over three years, from Feb. 2008 to July 2011, and I was forced to resign due to an on-the-job injury. I have since healed and applied for my old job twice and was denied even an interview each time! If the VA is all about vets, why do they keep throwing me under the bus? I’m writing the story to share with my local news agencies and anyone else that is interested.
