Assemblyman Colton Announces the Creation of the Veterans’ Employment Portal

November 14, 2012
Assemblyman Colton is announcing the creation of the Veterans’ Employment Portal on the NYS Division of Veterans’ Affairs website. The portal is meant to serve as a resource to veterans in obtaining and maintaining employment in both the public and private sector. The website provides links to both state and national veteran job banks with searchable databases listing thousand of jobs and employers looking to hire veterans. This program was created in response to legislation Assemblyman Colton co-sponsored and passed this year.

“Veterans have sacrificed so much in the defense of our nation and our values. We deploy them to some of the most dangerous parts of the world and it is our duty to help employ them and their skills once they come home. They deserve the dignity and respect that comes from employment,” said Assemblyman Colton.
