WESTCHESTER COUNTY, N.Y. -- Westchester County Executive Rob Astorino will team up with Putnam County Executive MaryEllen ODell for the third Veterans Virtual Job Fair that will run through Dec. 31.
“Our veterans have the skills, training, professionalism and confidence to help any business grow,” Astorino said in a statement. “The tax credits and training subsidies currently available make it a great time to hire a veteran.”
Businesses can earn up to $8,000 in federal tax credits per employee for the veterans they hire. In addition, businesses can get up to $20,000 to train the qualifying employees they hire through the county’s Hire Westchester program.
The online job fair is available free of charge. Employers can register their available positions and search online profiles, while veterans can post their resumes and search for jobs. The jobs available through the online portal include positions in sales, retail, IT, accounting, financial services, graphic arts, custodial and more.
