Auditor General Recommends Solutions to Help Veterans Find Good Jobs

HARRISBURG – Auditor General Eugene DePasquale this week made six recommendations to help Pennsylvania’s veterans get good jobs after leaving the military.

“Military veterans possess a lot of valuable experience that can benefit civilian employers,” DePasquale said. “We need to do more to help veterans overcome the challenges they face and make a smooth transition into good jobs after their service to our nation ends.”

To follow up on his audit of the state’s workforce development system, DePasquale met with veterans and workforce development experts. Based on those meetings, DePasquale issued a report offering six recommendations:

“We owe it to the women and men who served to provide all available resources to help them find good jobs,” DePasquale said. “I want Pennsylvania to become the model for how every state treats veterans when they transition to the civilian labor force.”

At the state level, Pennsylvania CareerLink Offices offer free job counseling, training, referrals, and placement services. Eligible veterans receive priority in the referral to job openings and training opportunities, with disabled veterans receiving the highest priority.
