Resources for Veterans

Welcome to OSU, Veterans! Thank you for your service.

As with all our students, we are here to help you develop goals for your own career development--whether that means discovering your interests, or applying for a great internship.  Come see us, as you transition from your life in the military to life at OSU. In the mean time, here are some links you might find helpful, in addition to all the information under the "students" or "alumni" sections of our website.

Local and Regional Resources:

  • Transition Assistance Online - is the largest source of transition assistance information, jobs, and tools for today's separating military. On this career site for military veterans, service members can find the resources needed to transition from their much appreciated military service, to the perfect civilian career.
  • Oregon Opportunities - is a resource for Oregonians thinking of returning to college to obtain skills or a degree—or considering college for the first time. Whatever brought you to our website, we’re glad you’re here!

General Resources:

Job Search and Career Opportunities:

  • USA Jobs for Veterans - There are laws providing Veterans' preference and special appointing authorities for veterans, as well as the fact that agencies recognize that hiring veterans is just good business. Federal service provides a means for veterans to continue their noble service to this country.
  • Veteran Recruiting - a division of Astound Virtual who has revolutionized the way military friendly employers, service members, veterans, and military spouses connect as it relates to the job search. Through the VRS virtual recruitment center, employers can recruit veteran talent across the globe in an efficient, effective, and environmentally friendly manner.
