Veterans Hiring Preference

Hire Me I am a Veteran

SCETV participates with other state agencies and higher education institutions in providing honorably discharged members of the United States Armed Forces who are given employment preference by the United States Government for appointment and employment. 

To qualify for the Veteran’s Preference, job applicants must submit the following:

  • DD Form 214 /Certificate of Release or Discharge from Active Duty (Do not upload with application – ETV will request directly)
  • State Application for employment to the appointing authority

Those persons claiming Veteran status without accompanying documentation (DD Form 214), will not receive preference. 

Eligible Veterans must meet the minimum training and experience requirements for the position and must be capable of performing the duties assigned to the position with or without a reasonable accommodation.
