Our New Public Service Announcement:
We aim to create a greater public awareness for the hiring of veterans.
“Our Veterans need jobs and careers when they come home. Every veteran brings a skill set to the workforce that the average citizen does not. These qualities make them a valuable asset to any organization, if given the opportunity.”
– Jack Wagner – Director, Pittsburgh Hires Veterans
At Pittsburgh Hires Veterans, we connect veterans and employers in the Pittsburgh region — free of charge.

Employment and agriculture go hand and hand in Pennsylvania; and veterans have the skill sets needed for this industry. Please stop by and say hello. The events are from 9AM – 9PM.
How is agriculture connected to Veterans? “Veterans possess a variety of skills that are needed in the agriculture industry,” noted Secretary Redding. “…we are creating a conversation and a pathway to help veterans discover new occupational opportunities.”
