North Carolina is bringing more military Veterans into state employment.
A new initiative created by Governor Pat McCrory’s office is aimed at keeping North Carolina-based military members in the state after they leave the military. They are working on recruiting them to work for North Carolina employers.
As part of the initiative, the Department of Public Safety representatives will host recruitment and hiring events at military bases and National Guard Armories.
At the event, qualified service members can apply and interview for positions such as correctional officers, state troopers, and probation officers.
Some candidates may even receive job offers for employment the same day.
At three hiring events at military bases in six weeks, DPS has made more than 30 offers of employment with additional offers pending completion of required testing.
Interested applicants for correctional officer and state trooper positions can visit www.ncdps.gov and click “Jobs” for more information.
