At Bender Consulting Services, we have a strong commitment to employing Veterans with disabilities. Our Veterans put their lives on the line to protect the freedoms we all count on in the United States. Yet, when they return from service with a disability, they often face discrimination when applying for employment opportunities.
We believe that it is our duty as an employer, and as citizens, to ensure that our Veterans receive the freedoms they fought to protect - freedoms such as the right to competitive employment. Because of our strong commitment to our servicemen and women, we perform outreach to Veterans organizations across the United States when conducting our recruitment efforts. Bender receives positions from customers in locations throughout the United States interested in including disabled Veterans in their workforce in career areas such as information technology, health care, engineering, accounting/finance, legal, logistics, operations management, and more.
Some of the Veterans organizations we work with include the Veteran’s Administration Vocational Rehabilitation and Employment (VR&E) VetSuccess Program and Hire Heroes USA. To learn more about these organizations, please follow the links below:
