Since April 2012, Metro has led a successful Veteran’s Hiring Initiative with a goal that 12% of new hires be veterans. As part of this initiative, Metro has participated in numerous career fairs, hosted networking events and collaborated with other organizations in an effort to reach into the veteran community.
Metro will also be utilizing the Los Angeles Veteran’s Survey to help improve outreach efforts and effectively engage with the veteran population. If you or someone you know has served in the military and currently resides in L.A. County, you are encouraged to participate in the survey. Your participation in the survey will help Metro gain greater insight to LA’s veteran population, which will help the agency target its outreach effort in hopes of increasing the veteran representation in Metro’s applicant pools and help Metro continue in growing its veteran workforce.
