VETS Connect Employers (VCE)
Facilitating Access between Applicants and Employers
Employment Matters. Employers seeking high value applicants and veteran applicants seeking great employers are put in touch through the VETS Connect Employers (VCE) program. We believe that helping veterans obtain great jobs is at the core of what we do. Most organizations helping veterans connect with employers charge fees for this work. The Foundation for VETS removes barriers by keeping this service FREE for the employer, and FREE for the veteran.
