Veterans Connect

Veterans offer our labor market not only a plethora of skills and competencies, but they also bring with them various federal benefits that offer a residual boost to the community, such as education benefits, housing, stipends, health benefits, and various others.

Nearby Fort Drum in Watertown, NY sees hundreds of veterans leave active duty each month and enter the next phase of their career. Greater Rochester Chamber of Commerce Talent Strategy team is working to attract these skilled, well-disciplined workers to our area by sourcing career opportunities suited to their unique qualifications.

Veterans Connect focuses on linking transitioning soldiers to employment, housing, and related services in Greater Rochester through a sustained effort that emphasizes employer engagement connectivity, relocation support, and family assistance. We are proud to serve those who served us by directly connecting them to employers and job opportunities immediately as they transition from active duty to civilian life.
