Assemblyman John Ceretto has announced the release of a new online resource that will connect out-of-work veterans to temporary state employment opportunities. The veteran's temporary hiring portal, which can be found at http://www.cs.ny.gov/vetportal/, allows veterans to upload their resumes so state agencies can find candidates for open positions within their organization.
Ceretto called the portal a positive step for veterans who are struggling to find employment in New York.
"It is appropriate that we roll out a new hiring resource for veterans on the day before Veterans Day," he said. "One of the problems veterans face when returning home is finding good work. While the jobs offered through this portal are temporary, these jobs can be a bridge for veterans as they find long-term work. I thank the governor for providing this new resource to our nation's veterans, to whom we owe a great debt."
