If you are looking for employment and want an interview without all the hassle, the Department of Military and Veterans Affairs (DMVA) has the perfect opportunity for you, and it is convenient and easy.
Starting Wednesday, Nov. 30, the DMVA will offer walk-in interviews every Wednesday at all six of its veterans homes throughout the commonwealth. Dubbed “Walk-In Wednesdays,” the hiring events provide the public a convenient way to explore employment opportunities and possibly receive a job offer on the spot.
“The DMVA understands that searching for a job can sometimes be intimidating and in-convenient. That is why we decided to make the process easy for anyone looking to join the staff at one of our veterans homes,” said Brig. Gen. (PA) Maureen Weigl, deputy adjutant general of Veterans Affairs. “Simply walk-in on any Wednesday to any of our six veterans homes, and we will have staff ready to interview you for a career caring for America’s heroes. Being part of our team is patriotic and professionally rewarding.”
Open positions include certified nurse aides, LPNs, RNs, nurse aide trainees and custodial workers. Anyone interested is asked to bring two forms of ID. While not required, interested individuals can expedite the process by applying online at www.employment.pa.gov ahead of any Walk-In Wednesday hiring event.
