Governor's Office of Workforce Development Launches New Website for Veterans

GOWD launched new web portal dedicated to veterans employment.

Operation: Workforce is the newest weapon in Georgia’s arsenal to combat veteran unemployment and help veterans bridge the gap between military and civilian life.

Operation: Workforce, found at www.operationworkforce.com, offers a variety of services specifically geared to assist military personnel on the home front. Veterans can sign up and create a profile detailing their military training, education, and experience allowing potential employers to find those individuals best suited for their job openings.

Veterans can also browse a list of jobs posted by Georgia employers.  In addition, there is also an interactive map tool. Simply entering your zip code, city, or just selecting your county instantly delivers a map showing the location of all the employment and veteran services in your area.

Operation: Workforce is not just for veterans; there are resources for employers too. The website features the “Pledge to Support Georgia Veterans.” Employers can sign this pledge to publicly commit to providing opportunities to Georgia’s veteran community, such as increased occasion of interviews and enhanced hiring opportunities. This pledge also allows veterans to access a list of “Featured Employers,” those employers that have signed the pledge and are striving to put veterans to work.

Operation: Workforce is on a mission to get Georgia’s veterans hired and to help employers find some of the most skilled, disciplined and deserving individuals in the labor market to fill the over 172,277 job openings in the state today. Operation: Workforce, together with Georgia’s business community, will continue strive to honor and serve our heroes while keeping Georgia soundly on the path to prosperity.
