New NVTC Veterans Employment Initiative

Posted: Updated:

Governor Bob McDonnell today joined the Northern Virginia Technology Council in launching the NVTC Veterans Employment Initiative. It's a new program designed to connect veterans to job opportunities, specifically in technology.

The governor was joined at the announcement in Fairfax by Senator Mark Warner, Virginia Secretary of Homeland Security and Veterans Affairs Terrie Suit, and a number of leaders from Virginia's technology industry.

In the coming months, NVTC will host several events to help companies establish and expand veteran programs.
