For Employers

The Greater Washington region is the second largest region in the country for employers seeking IT workers.

As the need for qualified tech talent rapidly grows, organizations are getting creative in sourcing tech talent and are turning to Veterans to fill tech positions.

The VEI provides support to NVTC member companies in their efforts to recruit, hire, train and retain qualified Veteran talent.

Why Hire Veterans?

99% of employers surveyed who hired a Veteran said they recommended that other firms do so as well.

Veterans and their unique technical skill sets, leadership and teamwork skills can provide your organization with a competitive advantage.

The VOW to Hire Heroes Act provides tax credits of up to $9,600 to businesses that hire vets.
