Veterans and Persons with Disabilities Career Fair Aims to Connect Qualified Applicants with VA Jobs
Coatesville, Pa. – March 18, 2014 – The Coatesville Veterans Affairs (VA) Medical Center will hold its first Career Fair for Veterans and persons with disabilities at the medical center on March 28 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The medical center is located at 1400 Blackhorse Hill Road, Coatesville, Pa., and the event will take place in Building 5, the Great Hall.
In line with federal regulations, Veterans and persons with disabilities can apply for many federal jobs noncompetitively. In other words, these individuals can meet and speak with hiring managers before VA announces available positions publicly on USAJobs.gov. The Career Fair is being held to facilitate that process.
“The Coatesville VA Medical Center provides health care that Veterans have earned and deserve,” said Acting Medical Center Director Jonathan Eckman. “Our dedicated VA health care professionals and administrative professionals provide that care. We are hosting this fair to attract the right people, those who can best carry out this important mission.”
Attendees can meet with hiring managers from various services within the medical center including Nursing, Police Service, Facilities Engineering Service, Food and Nutrition Service, Environmental Management Service and more. All attendees should bring their resume and professional licenses, certificates or college transcripts; and Veterans should bring their DD-214; and VA Service Connected Disability Award Letter.
At the fair, VA eligibility and enrollment specialists will be on hand to guide interested Veterans through the VA health care application process. Successful enrollment in VA health care may satisfy the Affordable Care Act’s provision requiring individuals to have health coverage.
Persons interested in attending the Career Fair can simply show up fo r the event, or call 610-384-7711, extension 4672 for more information. Any Veteran interested in checking on his or her eligibility for VA health care can call 610-383-0265 to start the process.
