The New York National Guard Job Zone was established in November 2011 to provide a single source point of contact to facilitate the distribution of employment opportunities throughout the State of New York to our Service Members and their Families. The sources of employment come from federal, state, and civilian employers who seek the attributes associated with military service. It is also the duty of the NYNG Job Zone to partner with the Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR) Program, Department of Labor (DOL) and the wide array of civilian employers who seek the talents of our Service Members.
The Mission of the New York National Guard Job Zone
The New York National Guard Job Zone’s primary mission is to serve as a focal point for job opportunities for our Service Members throughout New York State and facilitate employer partnering with our program, through posting of job fairs and individual employment opportunities on our website, face to face and electronic communication with employers and a constant liaison with the Department of Labor and the NYESGR Committee.
The Vision of the New York National Guard Job Zone
The goal of the New York National Guard Job Zone is to increase the number of employed, decrease the number of underemployed Service Members and their Families, and build a robust network of private businesses in support of Service Members and their Families throughout New York State.
Over one million Service Members are projected to leave the military between 2011-2018. This single data point underscores the importance of linking Veterans to critical support and outreach sources. Get more Veteran employment information here.
