The NCUA and VA Team Up on Veterans Employment


On September 11, 2013, Rafael A. Torres, Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary for Human Resources and Administration and Debbie Matz, Chairman of the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to provide NCUA with access to the VA for Vets high-tech, high-touch career readiness services to increase Veteran employment in the NCUA workforce.
 
The MOU aligns with President Obama’s Executive Order 13518 to increase the number of Veterans in the federal workforce.  Under the Feds for Vets initiative, all federal agencies have the opportunity to leverage the VA for Vets program by signing MOUs to solidify a partnership with VA through the Veteran Employment Services Office (VESO).   The collaboration between VESO and NCUA is one of the many steps taken to follow up with President Obama’s vision to increase Veteran employment.  Although NCUA is the fifth federal agency to partner with VA, it is the first financial services regulatory agency to do so.  Principal Deputy Torres said, “VESO is privileged to begin a cooperative effort with NCUA on Veterans employment.”
 
VESO supports Veteran recruitment, retention, and reintegration through the development and implementation of the innovative VA for Vets program.  The program offers the most advanced online integrated military skills translator and career assessment tool on the market; a resume builder that tailors resumes so Veterans can more easily compete for open positions; and avatar-based technology that connects deployed Military Service Members back to VA during their operational missions. In addition, Veterans have the option to receive one-on-one assistance from Career Coaches located in VA for Vets Call Centers.
