Many consider Florida to be the most veteran-friendly state in the nation. In fact, more than 1.5 million veterans have made the state their home.
That’s why, in 2014, the state founded the nonprofit organization Veterans Florida, which helps veterans transition back into civilian life through career, entrepreneurial, and educational programs.
Established by the Florida Legislature in 2014 as part of the Florida GI Bill, Veterans Florida encourages recently retired or separated military personnel to make Florida their permanent residence.
Plus, when it comes to jobs, Florida ranks #2 for “best state for business” and numerous businesses in high-growth fields such as aerospace, manufacturing, logistics, and technology are seeking to hire veterans and provide them with the training they need to build a long career.
Veterans Florida’s career team will help you connect with employers eager to hire veterans and with positions perfectly suited to your background. All you have to do is register for Veterans Florida Career Services and check out current career listings.
