Hire A Veteran For GIS Work

Looking to fill a GIS position or internship in your organization?  Consider hiring a US Veteran!  Many participate in the US Chamber of Commerce Foundation’s Hiring Our Heroes.  The program allows veterans and transitioning service members to work for a company or organization while still serving on active duty at no cost to you!

For example, right now Luis Martinez Jr., a certified Geospatial Intelligence Analyst and military veteran is looking for an opportunity to work.  He has a Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice, a Master of Information Technology in Homeland Security Management, and is working on his Master of Science in Geoscience.  He can work from January 10, 2018 to March 30, 2018 while still serving on active duty.  Check out his resume and contact him if interested!
