Why and How Government Agencies Should Hire College Educated, Military Veterans

Colonel Adam Rocke

Colonel Adam Rocke

At niche job board College Recruiter, we’ve seen a significant increase in the number of military veterans being hired by federal, state, and local government agencies.

There are some legal reasons for that, including Executive Order 13518, but a significant number of agencies have learned that hiring veterans is right thing to do for the veterans, the right thing to do for our country, and also the right thing to do for their agencies as veterans — including those with a college education — make for some of the most productive employees.

OPM’s presentation on Pathways Program at the College Recruiting Bootcamp

How often has your agency tried to recruit a recent college grad or student only to lose them to a corporate employer because of higher pay, nicer offices, or a more exciting brand?

Lost in that struggle is the reality that you’re better off losing the candidate who is going to choose a career path based upon who pays the most.

So what’s one of the federal government’s biggest advantages? The Pathways Programs. Unlike the need to “hit the ground running” that so many corporate employers require of young adults, the Pathways Programs offer clear paths to federal internships and meaningful training and career development opportunities for people who are at the beginning of their federal service.
