Promoting workforce excellence.

Veterans Information

Our Commitment

As a way of honoring those men and women who have served their country on active duty with the armed forces, the State of Idaho gives preference to veterans by providing them a more favorable competitive position for state government employment, while at the same time acknowledging the larger sacrifice of disabled veterans. Eligible veterans are provided advantages in employment with the State of Idaho, including preference for initial employment and retention in the event of layoffs.

The State of Idaho attends the annual Hiring our Heroes job fair.
