Last week, Gov. Cuomo announced the launch of an online portal to enable veterans to find out about temporary employment opportunities offered by various state agencies. The Veterans Temporary Hiring Program offers opportunities for temporary employment in positions such as a disaster assistance representative, transportation construction inspector and highway maintenance worker, as well as seasonal positions, such as a lifeguard and tax information aide.

Gov. Cuomo said:

“We owe all of our Veterans a tremendous debt of gratitude for their service, and helping them find employment is an important way to support them here at home. By connecting Veterans with job opportunities in their area, this new online portal will help the men and women of the armed forces leverage their skills and experiences and ultimately grow their careers.”
