ALEXANDRIA, Va. (5/28/14)--The National Credit Union Administration has been rated as a "Best of the Best" when it comes to career opportunities for veterans by U.S. Veterans Magazine. In 2014, 47% of NCUA's new hires have been veterans, and they make up 16% of the agency's overall workforce.
"As part of our efforts to make NCUA an employer of choice, we want to be certain veterans know about the kinds of job opportunities available at the agency. We also want access to this group of talented workers with a commitment to public service," said NCUA Board Chair Debbie Matz.
The NCUA joined forces with the Department of Veterans Affairs in September 2013 to create more opportunities for veterans through the Feds for Vets program. The agency also focuses on veterans and the Pathways Internship Program, which aims to reach entry-level candidates, including disabled veterans, and provides flexibility to veterans who are recent graduates.
According to DiversityComm Inc., the parent company of U.S. Veterans Magazine, scores are awarded based on policies supporting equal access, advancement and inclusion of all individuals, as well as other activities demonstrating a commitment to diversity and equal opportunity.
