“Supporting veterans in their return to civilian life is important to us,” said Neal Alexander, the state's human resources director. “As they leave the military, we want to make sure they put their talents to use right here in our state.”

“Military troops and veterans are a great asset to the State,” said Neal Alexander, Director of the Office of State Human Resources (OSHR). “They have the skill-sets, experience and discipline needed to excel at these positions and many others.”

“Employers are recognizing the valuable skill-sets and expertise veterans have to offer,” said Neal Alexander, Director of the Office of State Human Resources. “Transitioning military personnel have the knowledge, skills, and abilities that employers are looking for… including state government!”

“We have shortages in many positions, such as nurses and correctional officers,” said Neal Alexander, Director of the Office of State Human Resources (OSHR). “By conducting interviews onsite and making conditional offers, we’re expediting the hiring process to fill much-needed vacancies.”
