List your Job Opportunities
As part of Mayor Alvin Brown’s emphasis on jobs and support to the military, the Jacksonville Military Veterans Coalition (JMVC) was formed. The JMVC is committed to honoring military veterans and currently serving members of the National Guard and Reserve by facilitating career, business, and education opportunities in Jacksonville. Our Coalition works with military organizations, veterans groups, industry associations, governmental entities, and Jacksonville businesses to build awareness and understanding of how these skills and cultural attributes make military veterans outstanding employees.
The Jacksonville Military Veterans Coalition can help you reach a valuable resource for your business: Military Veterans. Veterans and transitioning military service members are ready to supply the very skills businesses need to be successful. These men and women have acquired a wealth of knowledge, skills, and competencies through practical workforce experience. In hiring a Veteran, you are providing your company an individual who is committed to excellence. List your business and job opportunities on the JVMC web site and enhance your access to this valuable talent pool. Hiring a Veteran is simply good business.
Military veterans who are interested in working for Northeast Florida businesses do not have a “one stop” resource or web site that outlines potential job opportunities. To address this need, the City of Jacksonville maintains a web site listing businesses in the Northeast Florida area seeking to hire military veterans. The "Jobs for Vets" web site provides an overview of individual businesses with contact information, not individual job opportunities/openings. (See example below.)

Upon receipt of the business’ request to be listed on the Jobs for Vets web site, the City of Jacksonville will verify the information and post to the web site. It is the responsibility of the business to ensure the overview and web link/telephone number/contact information remain current.

All businesses seek employees with a commitment to excellence. Military veterans have this commitment and with their significant experience and maturity have the proven potential to become disciplined, dedicated employees.
