Veterans Temporary Hiring Program
The Veterans Temporary Hiring Program provides veterans with access to temporary employment across New York State.
The Veterans Temporary Hiring Program Portal provides a centralized location for qualified veterans to submit employment and contact information for consideration by state agencies when filling temporary positions.
Agencies must use the Veterans Temporary Hiring Program rather than temporary employment service companies to identify and select qualified candidates for temporary appointments. Opportunities for temporary employment exist in a variety of titles.
