Veterans

Our Team Supporting You:

The EMHS Talent Acquisition team is dedicated to supporting veterans as they determine their next career options. Here are just a few of the ways we are better positioning EMHS to assist our veterans:
   
    EMHS joined the U.S. Army's Partnership for Youth Success (PaYS) Program in November.

    Maine’s Hire-a-Vet Campaign: In 2017 we continued our participation hiring an additional 17 veterans to the 47 hired during the 2016 campaign.

    EMHS attended the annual Kick-Off Job Fair and Training with 147 businesses throughout the State with a goal to hire 100 veterans in 100 days. This event included Military 101 Training identifying the structure and culture of the military. Our participation gave our recruiters an understanding of the different branches, rank, military structure components, pay structure and defined “Veteran Status”. During the 2016 campaign, we had the opportunity to hire two recruiters with military backgrounds onto the team. With recruiters who have been on both sides of the resume, we help our hiring managers translate military experience to the healthcare field.

    We participate monthly in the career fairs at the Career Centers throughout the state of Maine and all career fairs/events scheduled for veterans. Our recruiters receive profiles of veterans every week to review.

    The EMHS Talent & Diversity Team offers workshops to all hiring managers to develop interviewing techniques which also focuses on a veteran component.

    EMHS is working with the Maine Department of Labor, veteran representatives, and local universities and colleges across the state to develop programs to help our veterans and active duty service men and women translate their military education and experience into civilian education and positions.
Veterans add a tremendous value to EMHS. Veterans possess important leadership skills, experience managing projects, supervising staff and adapting effectively to change. We are dedicated to supporting veterans as they determine their next career options. We encourage our veterans and their families to apply as we have a variety of openings throughout the state.
