Mint, BEP renew veteran hiring efforts

 

The U.S. Mint and Bureau of Engraving and Printing have launched a joint initiative to assist military service members transitioning to civilian life by providing career counseling and information on job opportunities with the nation’s manufacturers of currency and coin.

For 220 years at the Mint and 150 years at the BEP, both bureaus have historically hired men and women returning from service. Today, the two bureaus employ approximately 1,000 veterans. So far this year, more than 50 percent of the Mint’s and 28 percent of BEP’s new hires are veterans.

The joint veterans hiring initiative features outreach activities and resources to help veterans who are seeking federal employment. These efforts are aimed at providing information on the unique career opportunities at the U.S. Mint and BEP, as well as ways to navigate the federal hiring process. The two bureaus will engage with veterans at several military transition assistance program events and will develop materials to help veterans match their military experience with civilian careers and their associated job requirements.

In addition, the Mint and BEP have recently engaged with Operation Warfighter, a Department of Defense program that provides wounded, ill and injured service members with meaningful activity outside of the hospital environment that promotes wellness and offers a formal means of transition to the civilian workforce or return to military duty.
