Find hot jobs with VA at these cool winter events

While the winter months may mean colder temperatures and maybe even some unpleasant weather, we’ll still be offering the chance to heat up your career at several events around the country this November and December.

If you’ve been considering a job at VA, meet with our recruiters and learn about what we have to offer as we attend events with:

The science of aging

Because I CARE

If you have the opportunity to meet with our recruiters, one thing you’ll learn about VA is that our core values—integrity, commitment, advocacy, respect, and excellence—define who we are and how we embrace our mission to care for Veterans. These 5 ideals describe our culture and serve as the foundation for the way we interact with both our Veterans and our fellow employees.

  • Integrity: We choose to act with the highest professional standards and maintain the trust of all with whom we engage.
  • Commitment: We work diligently to serve Veterans, and are driven by an earnest belief in VA’s mission.
  • Advocacy: We are truly Veteran-centric, as we work to identify, consider, and advance the interests of Veterans.
  • Respect: We treat all those we serve and with whom we work with dignity and respect, because we believe you must show respect to earn it.
  • Excellence: We strive for the highest quality and value continuous improvement.

Together, these values provide a measure for the standards expected of all VA employees, reminding everyone that “I CARE.”

“The Veterans, when they come in, and you get to shake their hand, it’s great to be able to interact with them,” explained Lauran Warburton, registered nurse and admissions coordinator at the Butler VA Medical Center domiciliary.
