Veterans seeking full-time employment are being encouraged to search for jobs in Indiana. The state, in conjunction with numerous large corporations, is offering to pay $5,000 in relocation expenses for out-of-state veterans to move to Indiana through its Next Level Veterans Initiative (NLVI). Eric Holcomb, the governor of Indiana, has said that there are 85,000 unfilled jobs in the state due to a lack of qualified applicants for high-skilled jobs.
NLVI is hoping to provide a solution to that problem by partnering with INvets.org to match employers with suitably skilled veterans. Many of the available jobs require applicants with leadership experience.
While some of the positions start at an annual salary of around $35,000, many jobs have the possibility of rapid advancement to as much as $90,000 per year within four years. To learn more or to apply, visit INvets.org.
