Veteran Staffing Network

Veterans want jobs. Employers want the best candidates possible and express a desire to hire veterans. The unemployment rate for recently separated veterans remains very high, but the potential is there and Easterseals is the solution. By focusing squarely on the individual needs of employers and veterans, we provide the best personal match for each position and the support our nation's veterans need to successfully transition back to the civilian world.

The Veteran Staffing Network is a social enterprise business developed by Easterseals DC MD VA that builds on our long experience in veteran employment programs. Our commitment to reaching out to the military community goes back to World War II. Easterseals has a long history of providing support to individuals who need a helping hand. We are poised with our nationwide affiliate network to navigate the often difficult journey as our service members return home.

As a non-profit organization, we reinvest all revenues generated by the Veteran Staffing Network to provide crucial support services for veterans, wounded warriors, and their families.

Our employees are themselves veterans, many of them service-disabled veterans. We walk the walk and talk the talk. We are veterans serving veterans.
