GVS student population is categorized into two major categories: a) Dream Beyond Incarceration (link to page) and b) Veterans 2 Work (link to page). It is important that each employer discusses their preferences and their obligations as an employer within the GVS JobPath Network. You will be responsible for coordinating hiring workshops, attending job fairs, and actively participating with GVS for various job readiness activities.
Due to the requirement of each student to complete a certification program with GVS prior to undergoing employment, we encourage employers to sponsor students within their interested program.
As students are applying and going through our program all year long, employers may attend weekly intake or submit job opportunities via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
