Questions & Answers


Q: What is the Referral Rewards Program (c)

A: A program whereby Vets can refer friends, acquaintances or social media contacts who are good “fits” for available job openings and receive monetary rewards if the referrals get hired.


Q: Do the referrals have to be other Vets?

A: No.


Q: Can I apply for the available job openings myself if I feel qualified?

A: Yes, just send us your resume and indicate which position you’re interested in.


Q: How often are new jobs added to the Table of Job Opportunities?

A: We update the Table weekly so check back often.


Q: How do I decide if a referral I have in mind is a good “fit”?

A: Always read the job description carefully. It’s hard to find a good fit for most positions. Make sure your candidate meets all, repeat all, the requirements for the job. For example, it the position requires “5 years Java programming” experience and “resides in Sacramento, CA” and your candidate has 4 years experience and resides in San Francisco, that is not a fit! Submitting that candidate is a waste of your time and will inevitably be a pass.


Q: How do I send referrals?

A: Email your referrals to:, with subject line Referral Rewards Program. Your submissions should include:

a – Your full name and mailing address

b – Your candidate’s full name and email address, plus phone number if you know it.

c – Your candidate’s present position or experience which makes him/her a good candidate for the job

d – How you know this canididate (friend, acquaintenace, colleague, social media friend, don’t know him/her, etc.)

e – Cite the Job # and Job Title from the table containing the job titles.
