Texas Workforce Commission Celebrates Texas Veterans

In recognition of Veterans Day on Saturday, November 11, the Texas Workforce Commission (TWC) would like to thank all veterans for their sacrifice and service. TWC encourages Texas employers to hire our veterans and take advantage of the unique talents, skills and discipline that our nation’s returning veterans provide in a variety of industries and occupations.

TWC also encourages veterans to seek out the many programs and services offered by TWC and its Workforce Solutions partners to assist them as they transition to the civilian workforce. The leadership skills, teamwork and discipline that our veterans gain through military service translate well to the civilian workforce in fields ranging from engineering to medicine.

TWC is committed to working with its partners to assist transitioning veterans by providing priority service at all Workforce Solutions offices, job placement advantages and training through a variety of initiatives and programs just for veterans. In addition, employers hiring veterans may benefit from a federal tax reduction through the Work Opportunity Tax Credit program.

TWC invites Texas employers and veterans to participate in the Sixth Annual Hiring Red, White & You! statewide hiring events on Thursday, November 9. TWC  sponsors these events in partnership with 28 local workforce boards, the Texas Veterans Commission and Texas Medical Center. These hiring events connect veterans and their spouses with employers across Texas who have job openings and wish to hire veterans to fill those jobs. The hiring fairs have connected more than 58,000 veterans with over 8,400 employers.
