Issue Position: Local Issues - Hosting a Veterans Jobs and Business Opportunities Roundtable
Veterans seeking employment and small businesses looking for employees do not always know how to find each other. That is why Congressman Murphy, himself an Army veteran, held a round table discussion concerning employment and small business opportunities for veterans. This excellent event was an excellent opportunity that brought together veterans, small business, and entrepreneurial communities.
The Veterans Jobs and Business Opportunities Roundtable addressed ways to promote the hiring of veterans, including ways to reach out to Iraq and Afghanistan veterans, promoting services available to veterans who are seeking employment, and the benefits of hiring veterans. Additionally, it addressed the ways to assist veterans forming small businesses, and discussed different opportunities for Veterans Owned Small Businesses (VOSB) and services available for veterans starting and developing VOSB's.
