The LCC Office of Veteran and Military Affairs is pleased to partner with InvestVets to help provide our veterans, current service members, and family members an opportunity to seek employment opportunities in the Lansing area, and other surrounding communities. MVAA also provides lists of veteran friendly employers within Michigan. These employers are actively seeking to hire more veterans.
InvestVets is a community based, all volunteer non-profit organization that started in Michigan in 2016. Their concept is built around the need for communities to come together, extend a warm welcome home to our returning service members and their families, and improve their employment opportunities by introducing them to our established business partners numbering nearly 500 at this time. Active Service Members, Veterans, Guard Members, Reservists, family members, and community partners are always welcome.
InvestVets emails job postings directly to anyone who is interested. You can email firstname.lastname@example.org and request to be added to the job postings list to receive those emails. Weekly Virtual Networking Events are also hosted on Thursdays at 1400 EST, with a rotation of industries throughout the year. For more information about InvestVets calendar of events, including their weekly Virtual Networking Events, visit the InvestVets website or find them on LinkedIn and Facebook.
Our office encourages anyone who is interested to attend INVESTVets events. It is a wonderful opportunity and doesn't cost anything to attend. Spouses and dependents of active military and/or veterans are also welcome to attend each event!
There are over 100 employers waiting to present at these events so each INVESTVets session will feature a different employer along with different service providers.
Michigan Veterans Affairs Agency provides lists each year of Veteran Friendly Employers within the state of Michigan. These employers are committed to hiring veteran and other military connected students and providing great career opportunities after you complete your degree or certificate at LCC. We highly recommend checking out this list for more information on these employers. Many of these employers also attend InvestVets networking events throughout the year, which would be a great opportunity to connect with them and talk about potential job/career opportunities!
