LT. GOVERNOR BROWN LAUNCHES FIRST-IN-THE-NATION WEB PORTAL TO CONNECT VETERANS WITH FEDERAL JOBS
Mil2FedJobs portal provides transitioning veterans with more direct access to Federal positions
LARGO, Md. (April 26, 2011) – Today, Lt. Governor Anthony G. Brown joined Maryland Labor Secretary Alexander M. Sanchez, Secretary of Veterans Affairs Ed Chow and transitioning veterans at Prince George’s Community College to officially launch the Mil2FedJobs Web portal. The portal, located on the Maryland Workforce Exchange (MWEjobs.maryland.gov), is the first of its kind in any state to directly match transitioning servicemembers with careers in the Federal Government.
According to the U.S. Department of Labor, more than one in five young veterans of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan were unemployed in 2010. The unemployment rate for veterans under the age of 25 was 20.9 percent last year, compared to a rate of 17.3 percent for non-veterans of the same age group.
