For Veterans and Spouses

How do you define who is a veteran? +×

Anyone who has served in a branch of the U.S. military is a veteran to us. We will work with all veterans, regardless of how much time they served.

My spouse wants a career. Can you help them? +×

Absolutely. We work just as hard for spouses as we do for veterans, and they have access to all the same resources. 

I’ve been out of the service for years but want to change careers. Can you help? +×

We can. We’re happy to work with you no matter how long you’ve been out of the military, and the fact that you’ve already been working in the civilian world does not disqualify you from using our services.

If I contact INvets, who will I work with? +×

For general questions you’ll be directed to one of our veteran engagement team members. If you need help creating your resume, you may work with someone from the Disabled Veterans’ Outreach Program (DVOP).

How much of my profile do I need to fill out? +×

Please fill out everything you possibly can. The more information you provide, the higher the likelihood an employer will contact you.

After I create my profile, how quickly can I expect to hear from somebody? +×

You will hear from our veteran engagement team shortly. If you are a disabled veteran, someone from the Disabled Veterans’ Outreach Program (DVOP) should be in touch within a few days.

What do I do after I submit my profile? +×

The best things you can do are start exploring industries, career paths, job openings, and all the great opportunities Indiana has to offer. Also, once you apply for a job, be sure to click the “I Applied” button so we can help you land it. And be sure to check out our resources page, too. 

What do you do with my information? +×

The only organizations that will be able to access your information are INvets and employers unless you give us permission to share your information with organizations that offer additional veteran services. Prospective employers should not send you spam emails or attempt to sell you anything; if this does happen, please let us know immediately. With your permission, we may also share your information with educators. 

For Employers

What is INvets? +×

We’re an organization that partners with the state of Indiana to cultivate our veteran workforce. We work together with veterans and their spouses to connect them with great careers they can take pride in. Our team also works directly with employers to help make these connections and show them all the benefits of hiring veterans.

How can my company benefit from working with INvets? +×

When you register with us, you’ll get access to our large pool of veteran talent to help fill your open positions. You’ll be able to view the resumes of candidates from military bases throughout the country, and we’ll help connect you with the right veterans based on your needs, easing the burden on your hiring managers. We’ll also help you identify all the benefits of employing veterans.

Do you help employees relocate to Indiana? +×

Yes. As an incentive to veterans, the Indiana-sponsored Honor Our Vets program grants up to $5,000 in relocation assistance to veterans and their families moving to Indiana. These funds must flow through our registered employment partners.

Does this partnership cost money? +×

No. We do have sponsorship opportunities, and rely on this support to conduct outreach, but you have access to all of our resources at no cost.

How do I get my company registered? +×

Simply contact us or sign up through the website to start the registration process.  

How can my company best utilize your platform? +×

Start by completing your company profile. More information is always better for potential job candidates. Once you’ve done that, browse through available candidates and take a look at applications. Then we can start putting you in touch with the right people.  

How can we meet veterans who might be interested in working for us? +×

One of the best things you can do is to come with us to visit military bases around the country. These visits are filled on a first-come, first-served basis.

Do you give presentations on the importance of hiring veterans? +×

Yes, we would love to share our expertise. We are happy to give a presentation explaining what a partnership with INvets looks like and why veterans can be an excellent fit for your organization.

What’s the relationship between INvets and Next Level Veterans? +×

Next Level Veterans is an umbrella effort sponsored by the state of Indiana, designed to attract servicemembers to the state and in the process connect them with the training, employment, and resources they need. INvets is a major component of this effort.

Can we use your site to post jobs outside of Indiana? +×

Since we are focused on attracting talent to Indiana and we’re funded by the state, we don’t advertise jobs outside the state. However, we ultimately want the best fit for  veterans and their families—so if that means somewhere outside of Indiana, that’s fine with us.
